X Elon Musk plans to collect biometric data and information about users’ work and education

Social network X, formerly known as Twitter, has updated its privacy policy. Now the company intends to collect biometric data of users, writes Bloomberg.

“Based on your consent, we may collect and use your biometric information for safety, security, and identification purposes,” the company said in its new policy.

At the same time, X does not specify what exactly it considers biometric data, although other companies use this term to describe data obtained from a person’s face, eyes, and fingerprints.

At the same time, the company said it also plans to collect information about users’ work and educational history.

“We may collect and use your personal information (such as your employment history, educational history, employment preferences, skills and abilities, job search activity and engagement, and so on) to recommend potential jobs for you, to share with potential employers when you apply for a job, to enable employers to find potential candidates, and to show you more relevant advertising,” according to the updated privacy policy.

Earlier, Elon Musk announced video and audio calls on the X platform. Meanwhile, it is not yet known when the platform users will be able to make calls.
