TechCrunch: Facebook warned over ‘very small’ indicator LED on smart glasses, as EU DPAs flag privacy concerns

TechCrunch: Facebook warned over ‘very small’ indicator LED on smart glasses, as EU DPAs flag privacy concerns . “Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) said Friday that it has asked the tech giant to demonstrate that an LED indicator light also mounted on the specs — which lights up when the user is taking a video — is an effective way of putting other people on notice that they are being recorded by the wearer. Italy’s privacy watchdog, the Garante, already raised concerns about Facebook’s smart glasses — but Ireland has an outsized role as a regulator for the tech giant owing to where the company’s regional base is located.”
