Chinese Citizens Will Be Required To Scan Their Faces To Use The Internet

Posted by Ed 8 mths ago

The Chinese government announceed that citizens will have to use facial recognition technology to access the internet (which is already highly fire-walled.)


This is all a part of China’s social credit system that will take effect on Dec. 1st. After the law is in effect, Chinese citizens who want to have the internet installed at their houses or on their smartphones will be required to undergo a facial recognition process by Chinese authority to prove their identities, according to the new regulation.


This is significant because now the Chinese government will use the internet to rate citizens based on their daily behavior online.


Since 2015, Chinese citizens have been required to show their ID cards while applying for a landline or the internet. This new law is put in place to verify that the ID belongs to the person applying for services.

Meanwhile ... in America and elsewhere ...  people willingly purchase and install Alexa and Siri...  which monitor every single word you utter...   
And then there was Edward Snowden revealing that the NSA monitors and stores all of you communication...  and still does....
Congress and the Senate even voted to extend the powers of the NSA ...  and Obama did not veto that.
Hello big brother --- won't you sit down and have a cup of tea?
