Would be a bit of a worry prior to collecting the biometric data. How do they know that the person hasn't already been registered under a different name considering the number of identification frauds carried out.
@Manah2 - Just to provide some clarity how using biometric information makes it easy to identify duplicates. Remember in the article they say that they "de-duplicated" about 190 million records. Fingerprints & retina are like DNA, they are unique to ONLY ONE PERSON. No matter how many names you register with, you only have ONE set of fingerprints/retinal identity. So eliminating the same person registering more than once becomes an easy task.
Has anybody drop the card in a cup of boiling water and see what happen ? Try it, it would be fun.
registered under a different name elsewhere,but with the same set of fingerprints,face and iris(es)? his/her time is up!
Pretty scary the amount of privacy and freedom people give away in the name of "security."
Let's turn the clock back 70 years ago. Sounds like a modern version of Nazi Germany. How is the data stored and accessed? RFID? We know how secure that has proven to be. Not!!!!
