I’m Glad Facial Recognition Is The Future Of Security, Because It Sure Doesn’t Look Like The Present

Boing Boing notes this tweet.

So, I was wondering why the battery on my laptop was running down every time I left it at home.
Turns out the kids have been using my election leaflets to get through the facial recognition lock…
I’m not sure whether to be proud by the wit or concerned by the sneakiness?

I’d go with a little of both, but my main concern would be that it was that easy to fool what companies have been telling people is the latest and greatest in security. I’ve always had trouble buying that line, but a lot of people don’t and are more than happy to give over their fingerprints and faces to big tech in the name of feeling a little safer.
