Verkada False And Manipulative Facial Recognition Strategy
Verkada is falsely and manipulatively alleging its facial recognition is "not facial recognition" and is "very different from facial recognition" as legal bans and ethical concerns rise against facial recognition.
This became a public issue as Verkada attempted (and failed) to circumvent Oakland's facial recognition ban. Verkada corporate stood by their sales team's tactics in a statement to IPVM.
Inside this report, we examine what happened in Oakland, how this is part of Verkada's ongoing manipulative strategy, why what Verkada offers is clearly facial recognition, plus feedback from the ACLU, Fight For the Future, Oakland Privacy, and Project for Government Oversight to IPVM on Verkada.
