    Biometrics is just a password you can't change and that they already have.
    You can be damn sure they can parse a picture of you to output the exact same data that a facial recognition scan does.
    The same with fingerprints, they already have everyone's fingerprints on file.
    They take them from everyone when they are children at school claiming it necessary to identify them if they are abducted.

    Biometrics authentication is part of the agenda to subvert the security and privacy of the individual by any means, be that covert or by way of propaganda to promote insecure practices.
    NIST has obviously been infiltrated by these people for the fact they changed their password guidelines to advise against regularly changing passwords. That means obviously, once an adversary has captured it one time, they can monitor that account permanently. Biometrics just takes that premise to another level.

    The entire tech industry and government and anyone with average intelligence already knows biometric authentication is far less secure than password authentication and all those pushing for it's implementaion represent those who wish to enable easy and persistant access to anyone's and everyone's data by government agencies and it will also be used to id users. Why? Because your fingerprint is on it son.
