Mortified Woman Issues Warning After Google Photos Automatically Sends X-Rated Snaps To Her Mum

A woman has issued a warning on TikTok for anyone who sets up photo recognition on their phone - and this has creeped us out!

Kara Tonin, from Canada, set up Google photos to automatically update her mum whenever she uploaded a photo of her son.

She also set it up so that it would add any uploaded any photos or videos of her son, Josh to an album straightaway, and straight to her mother's phone.

But when Kara made an X-rated video in her kitchen, Google Photos recognised a photo of her son on the fridge and sent the spicy video to her mum!

Awkward!

Take a look below:

Kara explains: "This is a PSA for anyone who uses Google photos or any photo app that has facial recognition."

"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?" Kara added. "A little too f***ing incredible if you ask me."

Kara went on to explain that she'd set it up to share an album of her son with her mother.

"So every time I upload a picture of him it will notify my mother," she explained.

A little while back, Kara said, she made an R rated video for her partner.

"Google photos picked up a very small picture of my son in the background on my fridge," she added. "And said "hey that's a picture of Josh, let's send the video to Kara's mom."

"I'm so sorry Mom," she went on to say.

TikTok users were horrified by the news and shared their shock at what had happened.

"This is why I don't use google photos," said one commenter. "I'm too paranoid. Nothing past my gallery lol."

Another wrote: "Same thing happened with my sister doing... something. With a picture of my niece in the background. I managed to steal my mom's phone."

Phew!
