    I have followed all recommendations that I can find on the web about using a VPN, Tunnelbear specifically pointing to the USA . I have tried this on my Android phone and my PC but it makes absolutely no difference to Google Photos and there are no references to facial recognition appearing in the settings.
    Most frustrating as I have carefully followed step by step but it just doesn't happen for me.
    I have also tried clearing cache and data and signing in anew, no difference!

    What am I missing or possibly doing wrong?

    Thanks
    Terry

    What are you trying to achieve? Is this Google feature only available to the US?

    Not available in UK due to privacy laws but the VPN fix should get round it. All details readily available online but just doesn't work for me.

    Closing, as we do not support circumventing valid restrictions.
