Facial Recognition APP for your Phone

Whilst channel surfing at my job today, I happened to see a story about a new APP that will use facial recognition software to surf the web and find any pictures posted of yourself that you might not know about.
I did not catch the name of the APP, though, so I am posting this in case someone else does and could helpfully supply it here.

It might be this, which I understood just a few months ago was merely in the acquisition/partnership phase.
I suppose by the time we are informed of this technology it has long since been ready to roll out with
what appears on the surface to be doing one a favor.

This was in an innocuous and annoying segment probably not well-viewed portion of the Today Show.

Oh man, I don't even want to know the pictures of me that might be on the web. Thanks but no thanks.

This has a more than likely nefarious application. It will become a tool, for creeps to try and look up photos of people they could snap in public. Or seedy men trying to look up pictures of their friends, coworkers, so on.
