Amazon Photos Unlawful Facial Scans Illinois BIPA Complaint

July 6, 2021

Biometric information is unique to each individual and cannot be replaced if it is compromised or stolen. In Illinois, the Biometric Information and Privacy Act (BIPA) attempts to regulate the collection and use of biometrics by private entities, but the complaint for this class action claims that Amazon.com, Inc. does not obey the law. The complaint says Amazon’s Amazon Photos uses biometrics from consumer photos to develop its Rekognition technology but does not follow the requirements of BIPA.
