Over 45 organizations signed on to this letter calling on federal and state government agencies to end the use of ID.me or other facial verification tools, and thanks the IRS and Treasury for ending the use of ID.me in response to concerns. Facial recognition technology has been found to be biased, have a disproportionate impact on people of color and other marginalized communities, and the use of the technology has serious implications for privacy and civil liberties. This third-party technology should not be forced upon individuals by government agencies.
