Also, even if there was a "skip" option for facial recognition by Xhaayos, this is NOT OK.

1. There's no info on their data usage so it is NOT informed consent

5. Biometric info is a permanent username+password. Should not be used.

Around 136 people said that they are interested in the #digitalsecurity office hour. I am doing the first one tomorrow at 8PM IST.

Feel free to ask me questions (mentioning my handle) and #securityofficehour hashtag. I will answer over video + toots tomorrow.

@Deepsealioness @nixxin @jamewils @Memeghnad can you please boost this one?
