In 2015, the launch of Facebook’s app Moments was delayed in Canada and Europe due to concerns that facial recognition features breached privacy laws (reported here).

Now, Moments has been launched with a different version of the software which does not use facial recognition.  Rather than the app automatically tagging faces, the user will be required to do the tagging.
