The 10-year challenge meme may seem harmless, but a new report claims users’ selfies could be ammunition for far more nefarious purposes. 

Millions of internet users have participated in the meme, where they upload a photo of themselves from 2009 and a snapshot of themselves from this year.

Some have since claimed that users’ selfies could unknowingly be used as part of a dataset for Facebook’s facial recognition algorithm to learn age progression and age recognition, according to Wired.

The report argues that photos uploaded with the #10yearchallenge would make it easy for a facial recognition algorithm to study a set of before-and-after photos.

In the best case scenario, this data could be used to help find missing children, using an age progression algorithm, Wired noted.

It could also be used for ad targeting, or more dystopian purposes, such as being supplied to law enforcement or insurance companies.
