12 US states now using mobile device driver’s licenses that require face scans to prove your identity
08/15/2023 // Zoey Sky // Views

Brian Shihavy of Health Impact News has been warning readers that one imminent threat to privacy and the ability to live normally without being continually tracked by Big Tech, the government and globalists is the use of biometric IDs. This type of identification works by scanning a body part, like your face, eyes or palms, to conduct business and participate in society.

Biometric IDs are considered an imminent threat because they are already being implemented in 12 U.S. states for mobile digital driver's license IDs, where you are required to provide a face scan to prove your identity.

For now, digital driver license IDs are optional, but as the government and Big Tech develop the technology, it probably won't be long before people are required to surrender a biometric identifier like a face scan licensed by the government to be able to drive a car, as well as do other tasks like withdraw money from your bank account or even travel by plane.

In the U.S., states like California, Michigan and Iowa are now taking steps to implement digital IDs.

California is still testing while Michigan is considering legislation related to mobile driver's licenses (MDLs). Iowa, meanwhile, has already launched its mobile ID app.

The three states are planning to join others already offering MDLs such as Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Ohio and Utah.

Ajay Amlani, president and head of Americas at iProov, said the new digital driver's licenses will allegedly allow residents to "virtually perform services" that would otherwise require an in-person trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). iProov is a growing global technology provider with offices in London, Maryland and Singapore.

Meanwhile, Michigan is proposing a bill that would allow the Secretary of State to issue digital IDs along with their traditional physical counterparts. If passed, mDLs would become official IDs that are equivalent to physical licenses. Mobile driver's licenses would then be valid for banking, ID checks for age, police stops and state government services.

Digital IDs are vulnerable to hackers

But some people have raised legitimate concerns about whether digital IDs can be accessed on a lost or stolen phone. Others have also voiced concerns that deepfakes and other cyberattacks can bypass biometric authentication.

Amlani said with the ease and accessibility of generative AI tools that can create fake images, "it’s irresponsible for government or business entities to implement any system utilizing remote-based biometrics without the necessary protections against AI-created deepfakes digitally injected into vulnerable camera feeds."

California’s DMV is currently testing a mobile app that allows people to upload MDLs to their phones using iProov’s biometrics and liveness detection.

The program currently has more than 2,000 active participants and is set to expand over the coming weeks before a public rollout. However, participating California residents are still encouraged to bring physical IDs because mDLs are not universally accepted yet.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is also accepting mDLs at 29 airports in America, including several airports in California.

Iowa has also launched its mobile ID app developed by Idemia on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Toni Smith, a spokesperson for the Iowa Department of Transportation, clarified that the digital ID is "a companion to the physical card" and will not replace it.

The Iowa mobile ID app asks users to upload the front and back of their state-issued ID along with a "moving selfie" to verify the identity of the user uploading the license with face biometrics. (Related: Destination, biometrics and more: New cars can track and collect driver data, warn experts.)

Despite the alleged convenience these MDLs will bring, there's no denying that the public is being conditioned to eventually accept giving up their biometric data by creating fear and then insisting that digital IDs as the solution to "keep safe."

This is why you should worry about deep fakes in mainstream media every day, with people using AI as a common threat to be wary of. Those in power also keep claiming that more people must "prove they are real and not an AI" to keep participating in society.

But providing biometric IDs doesn't actually make you more secure, it makes you more vulnerable since it is easier to track someone when their biometric data is available online.
