Apple’s new smartphone will unlock using FaceID, The dread will spread. #dystopia #technoskeptic #orwell



The road to hell will be paved with our faces.

"As the smartphone of record, it is almost inevitable that the iPhone’s inclusion of this technology will pave the way for consumers to accept face recognition use elsewhere, even if these other systems are inaccurate, privacy invasive, or otherwise problematic. It’s easy to be comfortable with what’s familiar. "

The key to our face will be our face.

"Think about all the places you show your face each day. Should retailers, law enforcement officers, or strangers have the ability to capture your photo, turn it into a biometric, and use it to identify, track, or surveil you? Are these uses of face recognition worth the erosion of our privacy and the persistent risks of misidentification? "
