The Federal Trade Commission is seeking public input on a growing potential hot button issue-facial recognitiong technology.

This new technology is already being used for some security purposes, and plans are being made to increase it, but critics say  it could forever alter the landscape of privacy.  It has already been challenged in some areas.   It’s one thing for passwords, even finger or thumbprint identification, but facial recognition opens a whole new arena of privacy.   The Federal Trade Commission is seeking public input about this technology, no doubt wanting to stay on top of public opinion.  It’s already been used in some communities by law enforcement, but the FTC, the Federal agency charged with looking out for consumers, is keep a close eye on it.
