Possibly, critics say, such a & # 39; n database could be used to expose sex workers and help people who want to harass or extort them.

Although the existence of the Weibo user database is questionable, Pornhub has actively used face recognition software on popular porn stream sites to catalog artists on this site.

It says the tool can be used to help viewers identify their favorite actors and personalize the experience of the site, but critics mock the measure for reasons similar to the recently alleged database.

Skeptics in particular say that the program can cause subjects that appear on the site to be unconsciously grouped.
