Developer of the NameTag app, FacialNetwork.com, said that in the future a person's photo would share information about them by the use of facial recognition technology.
According to the Independent, the NameTag app currently works on Google Glass but its makers have promised to bring the tech to smartphones in the future.
Although, FacialNetwork hasn't specified how it would compile their database, but it could use any information that has been made public on Twitter or Facebook by users to provide information.
Doing so triggers privacy concerns, but the company has said that individuals could opt-out of the system by signing up to the company's NameTag service, and the app is not about invading someone's privacy but connecting people who want to be connected, the report added. (ANI)
