China Forces Phone Companies to Collect Face Scans of Phone Owners
New legislation in China requiring telecom operators to collect face scans of their new phone users came into effect on Sunday

........

The policy is part of an effort by the communist regime to reduce people’s ability to stay anonymous on the internet and a broader push at stepping up the country’s mass surveillance program. Under the lapsing rules, customers applying for new phone numbers need to show their national ID card and have their photos taken, not submit to a face scan.

BBC article.

Reading the article, phone company's are required to obtain a facial Image of the phone owner to register the phone and forward it to the government.

gov't overstep.

altho we can see the writing on the wall for the USA, since am sure China will find a way to try and force the USA govt to do the same.

Just like they already are being allowed by our govt to 'demand' the USA disarm the people. I am enuff of a rebel that my first thought is who the f* do they think they are, demanding anything..
