Мессенджер Signal добавили себе фичу “заблурить лицо на фото” и вообще блуринг произвольных областей фотографии. Говорят что для того, чтобы помочь скрываться протестующим, но по честному - для пиара, конечно. С одной стороны молодцы, этой функции конечно нехватает. А с другой - лучше бы они сделали более человечный интерфейс чата signal.org/blog/blur-tools/

Blur tools for Signal

Right now, people around the world are marching and protesting against racism and police brutality, outraged by the most recent police murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. At Signal, we support the people who have gone into the streets to make their voices heard. We believe that something in America needs to change, and even if we don’t know exactly how, we support and trust in the people who are self-organizing around the country to figure it out. Many of the people and groups who are organizing for that change are using Signal to communicate, and we’re working hard to keep up with the increased traffic. We’ve also been working to figure out additional ways we can support everyone in the street right now. One immediate thing seems clear: 2020 is a pretty good year to cover your face.
