PORTLAND (WGME) – Privacy protects people who participate in "10 year challenge" may unknowingly share sensitive information.
As the challenge becomes more popular, spread across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram spread privacy forecasts warnings that the challenge could be an attempt to compile face recognition data.
If you spend some time on social media, you've probably seen the 10-year challenge now.
That is the thing that people send a 2009 picture with one from 2019.
The "challenge problems" were first raised in a "Wired" statement.
Facebook says while using facial recognition technology, it didn't start the trend and it doesn't get any of it.
Still, experts say the challenge is a treasure trove of information for other companies working with face recognition.
Facebook points out that you can turn facial recognition off and make sure pictures you upload are private.
If you still have concerns, you can always just skip the challenge.
