The Uni­ted Sta­tes is cha­rac­te­ri­sed by a very dif­fe­rent appro­ach to the deve­lop­ment of tech­no­lo­gy and its regu­la­tion, as well as to the pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data, than is adop­ted in the Euro­pe­an Union. The pur­po­se of this artic­le is to outli­ne what impact the deve­lop­ment and use of facial reco­gni­tion tech­no­lo­gy in the US is having on the fun­da­men­tal right to pri­va­cy and the lives of its citi­zens. The ana­ly­sis is based on adop­ted and postu­la­ted legi­sla­tion, cur­rent deve­lop­ments in the per­cep­tion of the appli­ca­bi­li­ty of this tech­no­lo­gy and the regu­la­to­ry prio­ri­ties adop­ted for the coming years by the US authorities.
