Stalker application in development

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

(WFLX) - Whether you're at the club, a restaurant, or even the grocery store, a new cell phone application, in development, could make it easy for anyone to stalk you. All they would have to do is take your picture.

A Swedish software company is working on a facial recognition application for picture phones.

It would allow anyone to identify you by matching your photo to pictures on Web sites, like Facebook and Twitter.

Security experts worry victims could fall prey to burglars, stalkers or blackmailers, so far, the company making the app is not commenting on its safety.
