YouTube is developing a tool that will allow faces in videos uploaded to the site to be blurred, addressing "privacy complaints from people featured without permission in other people's videos," InformationWeek reports. Victoria Grand, YouTube's director of global communications and policy, said currently, when such complaints are received, videos must be removed. "Once the blur tool is made available, video creators will have the option to edit the video in question so the complainant's face is blurred. This will allow the video to remain on YouTube," the report states. YouTube expects to have the technology available for use in online videos within a few months.
