Data Breach Shows Clearview AI Sold Facial Recognition to Private Companies

It seemed little more than a rare bit of cosmic justice when someone stole the user list of privacy-busting facial recognition service Clearview AI. But there’s more to the story: while Clearview claimed it sold only to U.S. domestic law enforcement agencies, the list includes many foreign entities and private businesses including Macy’s, Walmart, and the NBA. So they were an even bigger danger than it seemed – if you were foolish enough to believe them in the first place.
