FBI Has 411M Photos In Its Facial Recognition System

The FBI has amassed more than 411 million photos as part of its vast facial recognition database, according to a government watchdog -- which in a new report criticized the system for its lack of safeguards and protections. That includes millions of individuals' driving license photos, as well as photos of foreigners applying for visas, and criminal mugshots.
