Biometric Readers Installed at Sports Arenas


CLEAR bionetrics have installed fingerprint scanners at Seattle’s CentrutyLink and Safeco Fields concession stands. Last month, CLEAR said that they have installed facial recognition scanners in at least twelve MLB stadiums.

An article from TechCrunch espouses that it is a privilege to join because it allows people to skip the waiting line. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as today people put their convenience ahead of their privacy.

At least it is free, there has been the proliferation of getting people to submit their DNA for testing and they are getting people to pay for it. I am aware of a new open source tool called Social Mapper. It uses facial recognition to identify social media users. They claim it is designed for security researchers while they are investigation the source of a media hack.
