Clearview AI – the controversial facial recognition app – has now been used by the US police almost a million times. This is according to the company’s founder and CEO Hoan Ton-That in an interview with the BBC.

The app retrieves images from social platforms without users’ consent and has been heavily fined in both Europe and Australia. Many in the US have also been critical of the app, which they say is an invasion of privacy.

The figure of one million searches comes solely from Clearview and has not been confirmed by US police. However, the Miami police have admitted that they use the software for almost all types of crime, according to the BBC.

Clearview AI is banned from selling its software to most companies in the US, but the police are an exception.
