Apple has since responded in a letter detailing the system’s built-in security features.
As the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods, and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation and the Law, Franken expressed concern over Apple’s facial recognition solution in last month.
Alongside routine questions regarding the basic operation or Operations may refer to: Scientific operation Surgery, or operation Operation (game), a battery-operated game of physical skill An operation (mathematics) in mathematics: Graph operations Unary of Face ID, and the underlying TrueDepth camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both system, the senator sought clarification on Apple’s method of data handling. User privacy is the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves, or information about themselves, and thereby express themselves selectively is a key concern may refer to for technology companies, which often collect sensitive information in a bid to better serve customers.

Franken on Monday issued a statement regarding Apple’s response.

Franken adds that he intends to follow up with Apple to glean more information about how the company plans to protect customer Face ID data. It is unclear what supplementary information Apple can provide, as the company has already published a wealth of knowledge relating to Face ID and the underlying TrueDepth camera technology to its website.
