Social media platform X intends to store the biometric data of users who consent to it. This is stated in the updated privacy conditions of the messaging service formerly known as Twitter. It is not immediately clear what exactly X means by biometric data.
We may collect and use your biometric information based on your choices for security and identification purposes. X does not clarify exactly what information this concerns, but other companies often mean facial features, fingerprints or recognition of the eyes.
It is still unclear how X intends to collect and use biometric data. Possibly one of the ideas of billionaire Musk, who bought the platform last year, is to get rid of automated accounts that spread spam messages.
X says that it now also collects information about the work and training of users. With this, the company wants to show suitable vacancies and ‘more relevant advertisements’.
