‘It’s a big breach of our privacy’: Concerns over forthcoming national facial recognition database

Civil libertarians have questioned the wider use of driver’s licence photos.

“Until such time as we have a proven need that this can actually address, it’s a huge overreach,” Liberty Victoria President Jessie Taylor told 3AW’s Neil Mitchell.

“It’s a big breach of our privacy and it’s just unnecessary.”

Ms Taylor said the government has a bad record when it comes to data matching.

“Robodebt is an ongoing schemozzle,” she said.
