Storing, distributing or publishing images and videos with visible number plates is often inconsistent with the provisions of the GDPR (as well as other data protection regulations) or CPPA, as license plates are considered pieces of personal data.
You can imagine a situation where the publication or leakage of materials presenting an easily identifiable car and its license plate brings unpleasant consequences for its owner. That’s why you should always anonymize such photos and videos.
The cases where one vehicle takes up a large part of the frame are particularly dangerous. The more visible the number plate, the greater the risk of breaching the personal data protection regulation. Whether you intentionally post photos and videos online or they are leaked accidentally, it is always a good idea to keep them anonymized.
License plate blur should not be a problem when it comes to a single photo. All you need is a simple graphic program that allows you to cover the appropriate picture fragment in any way. However, anonymizing a video or many photos at once is much more difficult. Both cases boil down to the same problem – putting the appropriate filter on tens, hundreds, and maybe even thousands of frames.
