So what happens when your face print (or any biometric info) is stolen from a server? You can’t change your face like you can change your password. Is there anything you can do to avoid your face being scanned or prevent your face from being recognized? What can you do right now to halt the use of facial recognition technologies while we sort out all the social implications? The answers to these questions and more in the second half of my interview with EPIC’s Jeramie Scott!
