Gulf News reports on China's growing use of facial-recognition technology to pay for goods and services rather than using traditional payment methods. The technology allows for broader data collection and falls in line with China's push for smart tech and artificial intelligence. Most consumers acknowledge privacy comes second to the tech's efficiency, while others believe the tech boosts privacy.

Now we can complete the payment with our faces, which helps us secure our account."
