Facial Recognition Now Removed

Private contractor ID.me said it will remove its facial recognition requirement from its software that is used by 30 states and 10 federal agencies, one day after the Internal Revenue Service said it shelved its plan to require facial recognition through ID.me for those accessing their tax documents online. ID.me has provided facial recognition software for those seeking unemployment insurance, tax credits and other government assistance, and worked for federal agencies including the Departments of Labor and Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration.
