  • The Washington Post reports Clearview AI reached a proposed settlement over Illinois' Biometric Information Privacy Act claims that includes a halt on facial recognition technology sales to private companies. Pending court approval, Clearview will stop selling and allowing free access to its database of facial images to most U.S. businesses. The settlement also includes a five-year ban on partnerships with government and law enforcement.
  • Meta temporarily disabled some features, including avatars and photo filters, for Illinois and Texas Instagram, Messenger, Messenger Kids, Facebook and Portal users, Biometric Update reports. Both states have laws restricting facial recognition use. The company says it is working on a “new opt-in experience” that explains the features are not facial recognition.
