The Knesset on Tuesday extended the biometric database pilot program until February 28, in expectation that the program will be enacted, albeit with some significant changes.
Until now, getting a “smart” biometric card required giving the national biometric database a personal photo and a fingerprint.
After February 28, entering one’s fingerprint into the database will be voluntary, a change called for by the Movement for Digital Rights.
Acting Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee chairman Uri Maklev echoed the Movement’s call, saying the final version of the law should also include an option for citizens who have already given their fingerprint to have it from the card.
