FTC Finalizes Settlement with Photo App Developer Related to Misuse of Facial Recognition Technology

The Federal Trade Commission finalized a settlement with the developer of a photo app that allegedly deceived consumers about its use of facial recognition technology and its retention of the photos and videos of users who deactivated their accounts. In a complaint first announced in January 2021 , the FTC alleged that Everalbum, Inc. misled users of its Ever mobile app that it would not apply facial recognition technology to users’ content unless they affirmatively chose to activate the feature. The company, however, automatically activated its face recognition feature—which could not be turned off—for all mobile app users except those who lived in three U.S. states and the European Union, according to the FTC’s complaint. The FTC alleged that the company also failed to keep its promises to delete the photos and videos of Ever users who deactivated their accounts and instead retained them indefinitely. As part of the settlement with the FTC , Everalbum, Inc. must obtain consumers

When children are riding their bicycles, parents and caregivers can take steps to protect them

• An adult should always supervise children 10 years of age or younger when they are using a bicycle or other wheeled sports equipment. Even older children may need on-going supervision when riding near the road. • Make sure children wear the correct helmet properly when they ride. Ontario's bike helmet law requires all children and youth under age 18 to wear an approved bike helmet when riding a bicycle. • Keep children away from traffic when they use wheeled sports equipment. Make sure they ride in a safe place. • Teach children how to:  a. steer, brake and ride in a straight line  b. wear the right safety gear, and  c. do a safety check every time they ride a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or use in-line skates • Be within arm's reach when your children are learning to ride any wheeled equipment. • Always walk a bicycle, scooter or skateboard across a street intersection, instead of riding across. • Tell children that you are happy when you see them riding safely. • Remind
