If you plan on walking in the area of the White House anytime soon, your face could be picked-up by the Secret Service’s facial recognition system.
The program was rolled-out last month, and will eventually help the agency identify “people of interest.”
As of now the technology is only being used to identify Secret Service workers, who have volunteered to take part in the program. However, pedestrians’ faces can also be picked up.
Once the pilot program is completed in August, all of the recorded images will be deleted.
If you want to avoid being picked-up by the system, the Department of Homeland Security is advising you stay away from the area.
