Revolut faces US class action suit over biometric data collection


Share post:

Revolut is being sued in Illinois as part of a class action lawsuit that claims the UK fintech company collected, used, and stored customer biometric data illegally.

Users apply to become Revolut customers by uploading a selfie and pictures of their ID. Then, to confirm that the two photos depict the same person, facial recognition software is employed. Plaintiff Tina Haralampopoulos claims that Revolut violated Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).

The bank is accused of neglecting to obtain written consent or disclose the procedures for collecting, storing, and destroying applicants’ biometric data, as per court documents first made public by the Cook County Record.
