EU mulls five-year ban on facial recognition tech in public areas

The EU is reportedly mulling a five year ban on facial recognition technology in public areas. The timed ban is aimed at giving authorities a leeway to figure out how to prevent abuses. The EU Commission said new tough rules may have to be introduced to bolster existing regulations protecting Europeans’ privacy and data rights.

The easiest way to deal with this is to give data rights back to the people, though the EU would NEVER do that.

Facial recognition isn't all that useful anyway, when most criminals cover their faces.
