    A facial recognition website that has been called a "stalker's dream" is sending shockwaves across the Internet – by helping people find every picture that exists of themselves online.

    Billed as a way to help people find themselves on the Internet and stay protected from "scammers, identity thieves, or people who use your image illegally", PimEyes lets you find images containing your face and "permanently erase" them from websites.

    It works a little like Google's reverse image search tool but is apparently much more sophisticated, using image recognition AI to pick your face out of a crowd with ease.

    It means you could upload a photo of yourself and use it to find any embarrassing old photos, or even random crowd shots that you've somehow managed to photobomb without realising.

    The tool doesn't come cheap though.

    Its PROtect subscription costs a whopping £77.31 per month while the "Advanced" version clocks in at £289.96.

    However, that'll give you access to unlimited image searches as well as access to the websites hosting your photo.

    The company behind PimEyes argue that it "has never been and is not a tool to establish the identity or details of any individual".

    Instead, it is designed to help people find images of themselves on "publicly accessible websites".

    Despite being criticised as "creepy", PimEyes has also been praised by people for improving their privacy online.

    One Twitter influencer, Kristen Ruby, said: "I like PimEyes. The tool is controversial – but it is one of the best tools for finding who has used my face without my consent. I then send takedown notices."

    She added: "It's disturbing but extremely valuable." You can find out more about PimEyes here.
