In a world of viral videos and facial recognition, ObscuraCam helps you share photos and videos while protecting the privacy of you and those you care about. With ObscuraCam you can blur and disguise faces in your photos and videos. Information that could identify you as the cameraperson is removed from the files for added security.

★ PRIVACY FOR YOUR PICTURES: ObscuraCam can be used as a camera to take photos, or to anonymize photos and videos you’ve already taken.
★ DISGUISE YOURSELF: Cover faces with pixelate, redact (blackout) or funny nose and glasses
★ AUTOMATIC FACE DETECTION: ObscuraCam automatically detects faces in both photos and videos, so you can quickly and easily anonymize a crowd or a long video.
★ MULTIPLE PRIVACY MODES: Faces can be pixelated, removed completely, or disguised with funny nose and glasses. You can also blur everything except a small portion of an image.
★ SHARE SECURELY: We remove all identifying data stored in photos including GPS location data and phone make & model so you can save the protected photo back to the Gallery, or share it directly to Facebook, Twitter or any other "Share" enabled app.
★ PROTECTS THE IDENTITY OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER: Smartphones attach information to every photo they take, including where it was taken and by what type of camera. ObscuraCam removes all of this information.
★ AWARD-WINNING: ObscuraCam was a Winner of the 2013 Knight News Challenge

    I still found my photos where I didn't want them. On picasa and g+. Dishonest bullshit that doesn't solve the massive privacy intrusion that google has inflicted on our phones. Uninstalling with disgust and disappointment.

    Doesnt let me view the video in its original format so I had to do auto detect face blur. It detected the Gatorade and a jacket and blurred those. It took it 6 minutes to auto blur a 20 second video and 10 minutes to save it.

    The video auto face detect/pixel needs some work. The pixels could be darker as well. Otherwise it works well. Dig the Metadata stripping.

    This is a very hard to control app. I don't know how you're supposed to resize the pixel square since it seems to only work when it feels like it. I try over & over with nothing happening then suddenly it just changes from one size to another with no visi
