Face recognition and biometric ID systems are the most insecure security systems there are. All data needs to be held in a database. Databases get hacked everyday. Neither can you replace your face or thumbprint if you lose it like you can your password.
Businesses love to look modern and cool by using facial recognition, etc. In reality, we already live in an age where I can video you without you knowing and make a deep fake video of you or create a model of your face to bypass Microsoft Hello.
All companies also know that biometric authentication system is spectacularly flawed, However, gathering as much biometric data you can on customers and employees is hugely profitable. You can sell and share this data to advertisers. They can then use this data to spot you in a mall and ensure that you get customised ads delivered to you via your smartphone and local store displays.
It’s nice to think that you could drive a car or own a home or work in a place where you and your property is super secure because everything is linked to your face, iris, thumb or a chip in your hand. In reality, this makes like super easy for criminals.
Criminals don’t need to go to the trouble of breaking into a home or torturing you to give up a password. They just need to grab a few seconds of video footage of you, lift your fingerprints from that cup you just threw away, or use a radio scanner to identify the frequency your RFID chip uses to communicate.
Facial recognition is nor important for security. Strong passwords and privacy are.
