Facial Recognition Software to Police Pandemic Rules

Surveillance • Facial Recognition • Hash Database • Technocracy

If you’re told to quarantine in Australia, don’t expect officials to take your word that you’re staying home. Travelers who return to South Australia, one of the country’s six states, are being forced to download an intrusive app that uses facial recognition and geo-location to make sure you quarantine in your home.

Residents will be randomly contacted by the app to provide proof of their identity and location. They’ll have 15 minutes to respond, and if they don’t, or their location doesn’t match up with where they’re supposed to be, police will be at their doorstep.

“We don’t tell them how often or when, on a random basis they have to reply within 15 minutes,” Premier Steven Marshall said. Adding, chillingly, “I think every South Australian should feel pretty proud that we are the national pilot for the home-based quarantine app.”1
