The situation is most evident in Illinois, which adopted its Biometric Information Privacy Act more than a decade ago to regulate the collection and use of a person's "biometric identifiers" including face or retina scans, fingerprints and voiceprints. The law requires firms to notify customers and employees before collecting any biometric data and impose limits on the use and sale of the data.
Combining all these technologies is used for automatically creating and maintaining a watchlist of fraudster voices (also referred to as voiceprints) from the suspicious interactions.

What should concern us, beyond fake news, is fake reality -- images of events that never happened, voiceprints of speeches that were never delivered, phone calls that were never made, texts that were never sent.
The key idea of this work is that using matching layer score assists decision layer in fusing fingerprints and voiceprints aiming at recovering identity information lost in decision layer and, besides, overcoming the above problems caused by fixed weights.
There are various type of these biometrics, such as fingerprints, (https://theconversation.com/facial-recognition-is-increasingly-common-but-how-does-it-work-61354) facial recognition , iris scanning and (https://theconversation.com/protecting-your-smartphone-from-voice-impersonators-79070) voiceprints .
The match-in-sensor architecture for embedded speaker verification has been proven with fingerprint biometrics, but was previously unfeasible for voice biometrics because of the cost, complexity and vulnerabilities associated with acquiring voiceprints using traditional acoustic technology.
