Ban Facial Recognition Cameras within the UK

Petition Details

Ban facial recognition cameras by law and bring in a legal framework regarding them.

Additional Information

Facial recognition is the perfect tool of oppression and the widespread use we’ve found indicates we’re facing a privacy emergency.
The use of live facial recognition by two police forces is currently under judicial review and the Information Commissioner is examining potential data and privacy law breaches.

Facial recognition is not currently governed by a specific legal framework in the UK, meaning that private companies can start using it without declaring the move publicly or notifying authorities.
