Ten billion images in its databases

That's greater than the world population and probably several times greater than the number of people with scrapable photos,

Even if they have a low percentage rate of false positives, that sounds like an awful lot of potential mismatches in absolute numbers and that number will, presumably, grow as more images are added. Not sure it's useful, never mind ethical, except as a marketing brag.
