Reverse image search

Post by ~svenhair »

PimEyes.com uses the latest AI and scrapers for reverse image lookup of any face pic uploaded to the web. It has the same tech as clearview.ai which is used exclusively for law enforcement. It’s $20 / mo, but you can use it free for a few times. I’m posting this to make you aware that any image of yourself that you upload or send to the net can now instantly track you back to all your other images and websites.

It helps to think of your face as a fingerprint, with just a picture now, one can look you up, the same way that law enforcement can dust for fingerprints.

Obviously once someone receives and uploads your image your anonymity is threatened. And yes, it’s extremely accurate and self improves with every use.

On the counter measures side, so far, there’s only one. Fawkes. Unfortunately, it may not be as effective over time as the AI gets better.

There is a "good" way for social media and dating sites to use this technology. It would help curb scammer and faker accounts where they impersonate someone else. Now on YouTube, when you upload a duplicate copy of someone else's work, it will detect it and get copyright strike. The same technology can be used to detect when a scammer and faker uses someone else's photo to pass off as theirs. This would purge a huge chunk of fake accounts from social media. Goodbye catfishes.

Funny you’d say that, I’ve been trolling for haircut models on CL for years. I went back to all of my more intriguing inquiries that never led to haircut and, yep, all fake. Funny part was the images that were stolen from porn sites. I guess there’s a lot of men or women who get off on sending in pics of their favorite porn stars wanting know what haircut I’d give them. Posers, your days are numbered. LOL
