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

    Great for photos. Not so much for video.

    "Unable to load media" message so often it isn't even funny, it's just stupid

    Was needing one of these for masking videos and it DID work but not well. Randomly my face would be shown even though I wasn't moving around. Just choppy and slips up.

    wants you to edit pictures immediately. I was trying to capture nieces playing at the park, lost every single photo because I thought I could just go back and edit later. worthless waste of time

    Not good. I tried to blur the face in the video but it doesnt preview the full frame. I also tried to use the auto face detect and it still didnt blur correctly. 1 star but keeping it installed for an update.

    While this ap seems to be functional to some extent, I couldnt get it to show more than the top third of the HD video I took in portrait orientation. I could see that I can set blurs and redactions but that proved utterly useless, as I wanted to apply a "modesty blur" to the lower part of the video frames, which could not be seen or edited in any conceivable way. Maybe this works better on other

    I took a photo including a screen with confidential information and it obscured a box down and to the right when saved/shared! Buyer beware.
