New bill could ban facial recognition in public housing

The No Biometric Barriers to Housing Act is expected to be introduced this week. The bill would prohibit the use of facial recognition technology in public housing units that receive funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The proposed bills follows after tenants in Brooklyn filed a legal opposition to their landlord’s application to install a facial recognition entry system. The tenants argued that the use of facial recognition technology was an excessive invasion of privacy.
