São Paulo subway facial recognition system slammed over user data security and privacy

A new surveillance system is deemed “inefficient and dangerous” as it fails to protect the personal information of 4 million daily users, associations say.

The current legacy system includes an estate of non-integrated 2200 cameras that will be replaced by 5200 digital high-definition cameras controlled centrally. But the company responsible for the operation of São Paulo’s subway system has failed to demonstrate sufficient evidence that it is ensuring the protection of user privacy in the implementation of a new platform that will use facial recognition technology.
