Are You Ready for Facial Recognition at the Airport? Airlines and TSA are starting to scan faces to get people through security and boarding faster, as privacy advocates warn of unintended consequences Travelers have to face a new reality—their faces are rapidly becoming their IDs and boarding passes at airports. Facial recognition is rolling out at boarding gates for international flights at big airports in Europe, Asia and the U.S., even as privacy concerns about the technology grow. JetBlue is doing it in New York; Delta in Atlanta, Minneapolis and Salt Lake City, with the rest of its hubs added by the end of 2019. International airlines from new entrants like Norwegian to old hands like Air France also are scanning faces to board airplanes in the U.S. In Atlanta, Delta is using facial recognition for international passengers in Concourse F at checked-baggage drops, the TSA checkpoint and boarding gates—anywhere you would normally have to show your passport or driver’s license. You just look into the camera. The system identifies you and knows where you are going, so out comes the bag tag. You don’t need a boarding pass or passport at security.

FOH. Big Brother is watching, our every move, from Facebook to google, to your damn WiFi and now facial recognition at the airport. If you live in a big city they already have "traffic" cams monitoring your movements, and have been doing so for the last decade and a half..... and then people have the unmitigated guile to talk about Russia hacking our elections, or China and their communist regimes but stay silent and do nothing and merely believe " oh its just to make my life easier!" Meanwhile our govt officials continue to rob us of our freedoms piece by legislative piece on both sides of the political spectrum. They say it's for protection but where were these cameras when Epstein allegedly killed himself? Allegedly not working. Which is pretty convenient for the Elite raping and sacrificing children. If you don't think we are living well beyond George Orwells 1984, you are willfully asleep and are part of the problem.
