This seems like a chilling conversation for Americans:

@amiloradovsky Since when has reliability been a goal?

It's an instrument of authority.

@endomain I didn't speak about the goals, I only stated a fact.
Whenever the biometrics is employed for authentication, there is much higher chance of denying the access for a legitimate user, and allowing it for a malicious one. Unfortunately the authorities apparently believe it's somehow superior to the usual credentials anyway.

@amiloradovsky I don't understand why you are telling me things I already know and that other people are unlikely to see. But yes, I agree.


I don't know what you know (but sure everybody knows more than me).
And there may be still chance other people stumble upon this thread.
Whatever. I responded just because I could, and had nothing better to do with the time. Never mind.
