    Portland, Maine is looking to join Berkeley, San Francisco and Oakland, California in banning facial recognition technology. The ban seeks to prohibit the use of all facial recognition technology by city officials and employees. What is your opinion on this proposal? We strongly support it. Learn more:

    City council members of Maine’s largest city met Monday to consider a proposal that would ban the technology.

    “Concerns about loss of privacy and civil rights matters have arisen with the advent of facial recognition technology,” the order read in the agenda for Monday night’s meeting. 

    If approved, Portland would become the first city in Maine to ban facial recognition technology.
