By turning on the webcam during video calls, we reveal our face, identity, race/ ethnicity, disabilities and living conditions. We also don't always feel like putting our camera on when talking to other people over video calls. We are also unusually quiet (or muted) when listening to someone on these calls. What if we could have video calls, but still avoid all these issues?
Anonymous video calls allow you to communicate with someone using your facial expression and animation, without revealing your identity, physical background or other sensitive information. It allows you to safely share expressions and emotions. Your webcam feed is processed locally, sending only the minimal amount of data that represents your virtual face.
