Facial hacking in media

This is more so identity scrambling via a "scramble suit" in Philip K. Dick's novels (represented here in screencaps of films). 
Meant to keep the wearer's identity secret, a scramble suit creates a "fake" face, either physically or just visually, to fool other people and security cameras.
The limitation to a projected scramble suit is that it does not physically change your face - meaning IR cameras (if sensitive enough) could still map one's face.
