Startup Pakistan: Earlier this week, a new Xiaomi patent was published online. The company’s mobile software unit published the new patent, which is for a new ‘anti peeping’ technology to ensure user privacy.
According to an ITHome report, the patent from the Chinese tech giant describes a dedicated sensor that is constantly working to sense at least one face that might appear within a predetermined range of the sensor.
In other words, the sensor will be capable of capturing at least one face, by performing facial recognition on the acquired image.
As per the result of the facial recognition software, the algorithm would determine whether there is a person peeping on the user’s smartphone.
Through this technology, the device will be able to ensure user privacy by preventing any confidential data of files from being ‘peeped’ or leaked.
