SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Face Guardian, a new identity theft monitoring company, today announced the launch of its image protection service. Designed to fill a growing void in the privacy and identity theft protection industry, Face Guardian monitors for an individual's face in images across the Internet. Utilizing state-of-the-art facial recognition technology, the service provides user alerts when a duplicate instance of a protected face photo is found on the web. A separate remediation service is also offered for identifiable instances of image misuse, in which Face Guardian will negotiate for the removal of an image from the offending source.
"Millions of 'selfies' are taken each day without a second thought," said Ian Koskela, Chief Executive Officer of Face Data, Inc. "People are creating a complex digital fingerprint—and often they don't realize the impact that can have on their future."
Even if a name is not attached, face photos contain biometric data that can be used to reveal someone's identity. Face Guardian provides a new layer of identity security on the web to address this problem. The product is ideal for individuals concerned about their personal image – whether in the work place, school, or just in everyday life.
Users can visit Face Guardian's website and sign up to monitor one photo for free. The photo selection is done through Facebook Connect and notifications of face matches are delivered via email. Users can log into the Face Guardian portal to access a log of all matches found to date, along with their sources. A premium service is also available from Face Guardian, priced at $9.95 per month, which allows users to guard up to ten photos at a time.
Face Guardian is an identity theft monitoring service of Face Data, Inc., established in 2012. Face Data is devoted to creating new, productive uses for face recognition technology.
