MaskerAid also seems to have found itself a ton of use cases, other than simply hiding your own children’s faces. Some of these I never expected, and all of them are very clever:
- Teachers may find that they wish to share shots within their classroom, but don’t necessarily need to fuss with determining which students have social media releases filed.
- Foster Parents aren’t legally allowed to post photos of the children they’re fostering. Despite, I would imagine, them often (always?) feeling like they’re members of the family.
- One may find that the profile photo they want to use for dating apps happens to be a group shot. By putting emoji on the other faces, it’s clear who is the one looking for love.
- Protestors are, sometimes without hyperbole, taking their lives in their hands by standing up for what is right. MaskerAid can be a useful tool to keep their identities private.
- The same is true of soldiers.

- On a more fun note, MaskerAid is an excellent way to obscure faces in amusement parks, or even better, on rides themselves.
- If a boudoir photographer wanted to share a photo that’s perhaps just a bit too risqué, MaskerAid can be used to tastefully (or humorously!) cover that which should not be shown.
If you haven’t given it a whirl yet, I’d love for you to give MaskerAid a try.
