Biometric data in 96 countries shows broad use for travel and banking – and rapid growth

Comparitech has issued a global biometric study showing what data is being collected and what it is being used for. China ranks at the bottom for privacy. The U.S. ranks fourth-worst. Ireland and Portugal rank high for privacy because of their biometric laws, and EU countries did better than non-EU countries thanks to GDPR. A separate COVID-19 table shows the concerning impact of that data collection.
