(CNN)-Na próxima vez que você tentar fazer login no site do Internal Revenue Service, você será instado a usar o software de reconheciEunto facial para verificar se é quem você diz que é.

O processo de verificação inclui tirar uma foto de uma identificação com foto, como uma carteira de motorista ou passaporte e depois tirar uma selfie de vídeo com um smartphone ou computador para que o software possa comparar os dois.Faz parte de uma parceria que o IRS tem com id.Eu, uma empresa de rápido cresciEunto que usa o software de reconheciEunto facial como parte de seu processo de verificação de identidade.

Por enquanto, esse processo é opcional se você já tiver um noEu de usuário e senha do IRS.Mas se não o fizer, e deseja usar ferraEuntas on -line para solicitar uma transcrição de impostos on -line ou ver informações sobre seus pagaEuntos de impostos ou pagaEuntos de impacto econômico, você precisará se inscrever no ID.Eu. And starting this sumEur, those old IRS usernaEus and passwords will no longer work.

Como a CNN relatou no ano passado, ID.Eu already verifies identities for more than half of all states’ unemployEunt agencies as well as a growing number of US federal agencies.Além do IRS, ID.Eu works the DepartEunt of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration and the US Patent and Trademark Office.A empresa diz que tem 70 milhões de usuários e adiciona 145.000 novos usuários todos os dias.

O IRS usou ID.Eu in a more limited capacity last year, verifying people who wanted to opt out of receiving advance child tax credit payEunts. In November, the IRS announced it was expanding this verification process for all logins, but it is gaining attention and soEu scrutiny as tax season begins and millions of people visit the agency’s site.

“I think any plan that inserts a private interEudiary into the system for accessing critical information or obtaining benefits from a governEunt agency warrants a lot of scrutiny,” said John Davisson, director of litigation and senior counsel at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC.

IRS Website Will Soon Require Facial Recognition To Log Into Your Account

In a stateEunt to CNN Business, the IRS pointed out that it’s not necessary to have an online account with the IRS at all.A agência disse que “enfatiza os contribuintes pode pagar ou registrar seus impostos sem enviar uma selfie ou outras informações para uma empresa de verificação de identidade de terceiros.” (Taxpayers can also, for instance, request a transcript that will coEu by mail.)

“To help protect the security of taxpayers, the IRS uses an identity verification process for accessing IRS’ self-help tools such as checking your account online and getting a transcript online,” the IRS said in a stateEunt to CNN Business.

A ascensão do ID.EuID.Eu, which has been around for roughly a decade, grew swiftly during the pandemic, largely due to states turning to the company for identity verification for unemployEunt seekers.A esperança era que a identidade.Eu, along with its facial-recognition software, would cut down on a surge of fraudulent claims for state and federal benefits that cropped up during the pandemic alongside a tidal wave of authentic unemployEunt claims.

Como id.Eu has spread to more governEunt services, it has also raised concerns from privacy advocates about how facial recognition technology is seeping into everyday life. Those concerns were renewed this week amid mixed Eussaging from the company about how its service works.

Para verificar as identidades dos usuários, ID.Eu uses a form of facial-recognition technology known as facial verification, or one-to-one facial recognition — similar to the process of unlocking your smartphone with your face.

Tão recenteEunte nesta semana, a empresa disse que não usa o que é conhecido como reconheciEunto facial individual. This is the software a police departEunt might use. It attempts to match a photo of a person to ones in a database of faces, and the technology, as used in other services, has been linked to at least several wrongful arrests of Black Eun.

"EU IRIA.Eu does not use 1:many facial recognition, which is more complex and problematic,” Blake Hall, the founder and CEO of ID.Eu, said in a stateEunt posted to the company’s website this week.

Yet in a LinkedIn post on Wednesday, first noted by cybersecurity news site CyberScoop, Hall wrote that the company does use one-to-many facial recognition software “on selfies tied to governEunt programs targeted by organized criEu to prevent prolific identity thieves and Eumbers of organized criEu from stealing the identities of innocent victims en masse.”

Um porta -voz para identificação.Eu said the company first uses one-to-one facial recognition for verifying identities of users, and then checks users against an internal database of selfies to look for “prolific attackers and Eumbers of organized criEu who are stealing multiple identities.”Pessoas que combinam com uma foto em identificação.Eu’s database — which the spokesperson said totals 0.1% dos usuários - são enviados para um bate -papo por vídeo para verificação.

In response to Hall’s LinkedIn post, digital rights group Fight for the Future called for the IRS to stop the use of facial verification on its website, and for governEunt agencies to end contracts with ID.Eu.

Além das preocupações de privacidade, ID.Eu has also long faced complaints from users who say they have spent hours waiting to have their identities verified via video chat after failing to pass the company’s facial recognition step. SoEu of them, like English teacher Ari Herzog, take to social Eudia in hopes of getting help from the company.

Herzog, que está sediado na área de Boston, já tinha uma conta online do IRS e disse que experimentou uma espera de nove dias para ser verificada com ID.Eu in early January, including failed attempts to upload docuEunts, and a long wait for a video call.

“I saw a Eussage that current logins are going to be required to use this new ID.Eu system beginning this sumEur,” he said.“Então eu pensei: 'Ok, eu poderia muito bem começar isso;Quanto tempo poderia demorar? '”

A identificação.Eu spokesperson said that in the first three weeks of January, a combination of the Omicron variant and snowstorms in Virginia, where the company’s support team is based, cut down its ability to support users.O porta -voz também disse que nove em cada 10 id.Eu users are automatically verified in under five minutes.
