In a now viral video, the TikToker issued a stern warning to all those who use Google Photos.
A Canadian TikTok user has issued a warning to her followers after she inadvertently sent an X-rated video to her own mother.
Kara Tonin explained in a video that her facial recognition technology automatically sent a video of her doing “unspeakable” and “un-Godly things” to her mum without her realising.
In the now viral video, Kara explained how this came to be:
“So Google Photos has this incredible thing where it recognises people’s faces and if you type in their name it will pull up every picture and video with their face in it.
“And then you can make an album of that person and share it with your friends and family. Isn’t technology incredible? A little too fucking incredible if you ask me.”
She continued: “So Google made a joyful little album of my son and then shared it with my mom, so any time I upload a photo of him it’ll share it with my mother.”
Unfortunately, this wholesome little trick ended up being Kara’s ultimate downfall. Things soon took a turn for the worse.
“So a little while back I decided I wanted to spice things up a little bit in my relationship,” Kara explains.
“And I made a rated R video where I was doing unspeakable, un-Godly things, and Google photos picked up a very small picture of my son in the background on my fridge and said ‘hey that’s a picture of Josh, let’s send the video to Kara’s mom.’”
Kara then issued an apology to her mother, but it goes without saying that some things cannot be unseen.
“I’m so sorry, Mom,” she said while adding a series of crying emojis.
Truly a cautionary tale for us all.
