The system's target? Hundreds of Swift's stalkers.

Taylor Swift used the hidden facial recognition software to try and make her concerts safer by weeding out stalkers.

Taylor Swift has announced that she will be bringing a concert film of her Reputation Stadium Tour to Netflix on New Year's Eve.

The system being adapted for Taylor's concert followed a break in to her property in NY.

According to reports, a kiosk which showed performance rehearsals before the actual live performance punters paid to see at Rose Bowl on 18 May this year scanned anyone who caught a glimpse for a fiendish reason.

The snapshots obtained by the camera were then sent over to a "command post" in Nashville that compared them against a catalog of her stalkers, Downing said.

And this, by the way, gives you an idea of the kind of thing Taylor's team was trying to protect her from.

"Everybody who went by would stop and stare at it, and the software would start working", Mike Downing, chief security officer for the Oak View Group told Rolling Stone.

Earlier this month, a man named Roger Alvarado pleaded guilty to attempted burglary and criminal contempt after breaking into Swift's New York City home in April, taking a shower, and falling asleep.

A third stalker, Mohammed Jaffar, was also sentenced to six months in prison earlier this year after threatening Swift with violence and trespassing at another of Swift's NY homes. Two recent examples cited by Slate: A 38-year-old man with ammunition in his auto was arrested outside her L.A. home in April, and a few months later federal authorities arrested a 26-year-old man and charged him with sending letters threatening to kill and rape her. "The entire concert film will premiere on @netflix at 12:01AM PST December 31".

Daily Star Online have approached a representative for Taylor Swift for comment.
