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).

Tremendous UX

Does what it says, does it well. Only feature request would be the ability to change the size of the solid and blur features on images.

A suggestion

Love the app. Would be great if I could tap on a blocked out face/body to unblock just that face/body and leave the others blocked.

It would also be amazing if you could figure out how to incorporate this blocking information as a photo edit instead of a raw photo, so faces/bodies could be unblocked later. Maybe even a way to block out faces/bodies in existing photos as a type of filter!

A great start!

This is a great tool to blur faces in video. Sometimes if the phone is moved it can blink, or loses the blur feature for a very short time, why I said blink. But it almost always immediately picks the blur back up. I can see it improving greatly in the near future and I look forward to continue to use it.
