How does PimEyes work?
PimEyes uses modern face recognition algorithms and the power of machine learning to find faces with particular parameters. Our mechanism focuses only on faces, not the whole picture, so it can find a person despite the rest of the photo (multiple elements in the background, other people, or things). It can also find an image of the same face with another haircut or contact lenses.
PimEyes collects only legally obtained data, consistent with the information on a given website.
