Using your phone as your passport.. Would you do it?

I've just seen a clip on the BBC website showing how the UK Border Force is considering using facial recognition and your phone to cut queues at immigration. Basically you just walk through a passage way lined with cameras.
bbc/news/av/techno...rt-queue-times

Would you use or trust the system if it does become available?

No! But I donít use boarding passes on my phone either. I like to have physical copies.

With the issues with ESTAs only this week, it proves that with any system there can be issues.

For me I would be happy to do it as long as it didn't compromise security and there was some kind of 'back up' option for travellers if there were technical issues.

Iím assuming but if itís just the UK border force surely youíd still need to take your actual passport anyway because if youíre flying abroad they may not have the technology?

I donít see the US catching on because youíre not even allowed your phone on in the immigration hall.

I suppose itíd be good as a backup but too many things can go wrong with a phone for me to trust it 100% as my only source of being able to get home.

Iíd love this! I have my boarding pass on my phone and itís quite irritating having to have a passport as well. Iíve actually been saying for years it would be great if we can get it on our phones etc.

I am so clumsy with phones - they've been dropped in the bath, dropped on the floor, run over by a car (yes really), so there's no way I'd have my Passport on one!

Ladies... both your posts are so relevant to me. My phone is always on charge , even changed the battery but not much better and too tight to buy a new phone.

With one phone I fell into a lake and fully submerged with phone in pocket whilst in the Lake District. Dried it out successfully overnight 🤗 and gobsmacked it worked , only to drop it down a toilet a couple of days later 😩.
Itís a no from me then 😂

NO.

several reasons. I donít trust technology to be safe re hacking etc

I can foresee issues on the day... try using the bloody BA app for a boarding card etc. Always failing.

Lost phone, nicked phone, dropped phone , broken phone


Love technology but sometimes just because we can do something doesnít mean we should.
