Amazon expands palm-scanning payment tech to 3 more Seattle-area stores

Civil liberties concerned ecommerce giant is storing immutable biometric information on its customers

Nov. 11—In its latest push to collect data on consumer purchases, Amazon is expanding a new palm recognition payment technology into three more Seattle-area stores, the company announced Tuesday.

Civil-liberties advocates, though, are concerned the company is storing immutable biometric information on its customers, which they say poses risks to consumer privacy.

The technology, called Amazon One, was piloted in two cashierless Amazon Go stores in South Lake Union earlier this fall. Customers who have linked their handprint to a credit card pay by waving their hand over a sleek palm scanner. Customers can also link their handprint to their Amazon account, though that's not required.

The scanners use two sets of cameras to capture images of both the exterior and interior of a customer's palm, according to a patent application Amazon filed last year. The process, called vein matching, isn't new — it's been around since the 1980s, and has been used by Japanese banks to secure ATM transactions since the early 2000s. Amazon One, though, represents the first significant commercial rollout of the technology in the U.S.

The gradual encroachment of Amazon's data collection into ever-more-personal spheres, Lee said, may generate a sense of complacency among consumers. "First it's your online shopping patterns, then it's your palm prints, then it's facial recognition, then you've ceded all privacy," she said. "It's very concerning."
