The usage of facial recognition technology is creeping into every facet of our lives. New projects which use facial recognition technology, either for the purpose of security/surveillance or for the purpose of authentication of identity, are being developed and deployed by the government right now!
In the absence of a safeguarding legislation which would protect the privacy of the citizens of India and a law which would regulate the use of this technology, the dangers that such a technology present increase manifold. In such a situation, even the development of this technology is harmful and should be stopped. Sign the petition below to show your support for IFF’s call to put a ban on the use of facial recognition technology in India.
