A woman has opened up about the awkward moment her own sex tape accidentally got sent to her mum. Have a listen to the heart-stopping story below:
Usually, when people film these sorts of things, they fully intend them to stay private forever.
Kara Tonin thought the racy video she shot was going to stay that way, however, a fancy bit of facial recognition meant it was sent to her mother.
Can you even imagine?
She took to TikTok to explain the awkward situation and it's a good warning to anyone who uses Google Photos.
"So a little while back, I decided I wanted to spice things up a little bit in my relationship," she said in a video to her followers.
"And I made a rated-R video where I was doing unspeakable, ungodly things. And Google Photos picked up a very small picture of my son in the background on my fridge and said, 'Hey, that's a picture of Josh. Let's send this video to Kara's mom.'"
"I'm so sorry, mom."
Essentially, she had set up her Google Photos account to ensure that any image she took of her son would then go into a folder that was shared with her mum.
Google Photos was able to work out which images were of her son and the system was working perfectly for a while.
While that is a handy piece of technology, it backfired massively when Kara's X-rated video had an image of her son in the background.
The video was then popped immediately into the folder that her mum had access to and, yep you guessed it, unfortunately, she had to get an insight into what her daughter was up to.
Not even worth thinking about, is it?
People were, of course, absolutely floored that the technology has the ability to pick up on tiny features in the background.
Other users were even more surprised that the act happened in the kitchen - or at least where a fridge was nearby. Hey, don't yuck someone's yum.
Kara explained how she still uses Google Photos and shares photos of her son with her mum, however, she's much more careful about everything in the shot before it gets uploaded to the cloud.
Kara said her Google Photos used facial recognition technology to forward the 'unspeakable' video.
I suppose you live and you learn, right?
