Starting this week, Facebook will use its facial recognition technology to notify you if your face appears in an uploaded photo — even if you’re not tagged in it.

This new feature, which has rolled out to every user, will apply only to newly uploaded photos. And you will only receive a notification if the person uploading the pic makes it visible to you through their privacy settings. Notably, this tool will not roll out to Canada or the European Union, where Facebook faces much more intense backlash over its use of facial data.
