Anonymous Camera – Playground.AI, LLC

Anonymous Camera allows you to seamlessly anonymize photos and videos. All processing is done in real time, locally on device without ever uploading to the cloud.

Powered by state of the art machine learning, it is designed as a tool of journalists, whistleblowers, researchers, and activists who need to record sensitive information while protecting themselves and their sources. In an age of growing facial recognition use, this app helps you resist against the erosion of our right to privacy.

→ Facial recognition and full-body anonymization: the app can recognize faces in a frame and can anonymize them either by applying a solid color, noise, or blur. You can choose to hide either people’s whole bodies or just their face. State of the art recognition allows faces to be anonymized from all angles and during movement. (full-body anonymization is only available on iPhone XS and up)

→ Remove metadata: users can choose to delete any and all metadata associated with the video, including time, date, and location.

→ Distorted audio: distort the audio track to anonymize people’s voices.

→ Split screen: control how much of the frame is anonymized to perform interviews while protecting your sources.

→ Real time processing: files are anonymized in real-time using on-device machine learning and computer vision technology, ensuring that the data is untraceable from the beginning.

→ Local storage: all processing and storage is done locally. Nothing ever goes to the cloud (try us and use it with flight mode enabled).
