Voice biometric data, voiceprints, and voice recognition technologies are being used for a wide range of purposes, from accessing IoT devices to identify verification for financial transactions.  TikTok recently changed its U.S. privacy policy to state that it may collect biometric identifiers and biometric information, including voiceprints, from users’ content.  McDonald’s is facing a putative class action that alleges that the AI voice assistants it used at its restaurant drive-ins extracted customers’ voiceprint biometrics and used voiceprint recognition technology in combination with license plate scanning technology to identify customers, in violation of BIPA.  As with other types of biometric data, such as facial recognition technology, the use of this sensitive personal data raises concerns about privacy, security, accuracy, and potential bias.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • What voiceprints are and how they might be used (10 minutes)
  • Privacy and security concerns raised by the collection and use of voiceprints and voice biometric data (10 minutes)
