How to avoid facial recognition software

Recently facial recognition software has been in the news more often than not, but do you know how it works and where it's specifically used? If your answer is no, fret not! For I shall go over all the core concepts on how the most commonly used software works, such as OpenCv and DeepFace (no, not DeepFake). This talk will then go into who is implementing facial recognition software worldwide and why. Finally, I'll be discussing some current evasion techniques that have been developed and the following questions will be answered; how do these techniques work, what do they look like, what algorithms do they fool and are they practical for everyday use?
