The biometric faces in the new biometric passport are also the best, according to security researcher Samy Khan.
“The biometric facial recognition system uses a camera, fingerprint scanner, and a biometric reader to scan your face and take an image of your face, and then the data is sent to a server where it is sent back to a bank or a bank’s server, where it’s used to authenticate the customer,” Khan said.
“So this is essentially the digital fingerprint of a customer, which is the only way to authenticates them to use their biometric identity.”
The face ID system is currently being rolled out to more than 20 million people in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and India.
The new system is also being tested in other countries, such as Brazil and Mexico.
