Obscuracam, a smartphone app for visual privacy

Obscuracam logo The goal of ObscuraCam for Android, developed by the SecureSmartCam project, is to to design and develop a new type of smartphone camera app that makes it simple for the user to respect the visual privacy, anonymity and consent of the subjects they photograph or record, while also enhancing their own ability to control the personally identifiable data stored inside that photo or video.

ObscuraCam doesn't set out to replace training and/or best practices, but rather to introduce these concepts to a wider activist audience, as well as to raise awareness and generate discussion around the idea of "visual privacy."
