Biometric digital health credentials for NHL and London theatre, Privacy International warns of risks | Biometric Update

The partnership with the NHL means Health Pass will be used to check the roughly 3,000 players, coaches, and support staff who are involved in the 24-team playoffs, which will be held in Edmonton and Toronto, Canada. In each of the cities, Health Pass will be deployed on kiosks with temperature scanners to roughly 30 physical access points to create what Vox describes as a “closed mini-ecosystem” of safe places.Participants will register their biometrics with Clear, and then use the app, taking a biometric selfie as identity confirmation, each time they leave their hotel rooms. They can share health status information with the kiosks through a QR code.
