Illinois Biometrics Investigation

Did you have your fingerprint, face, voice, or eye scanned or recorded to verify your identity? Illinois residents may be entitled to compensation of up to $5,000 each for loss of privacy.


A landmark Illinois privacy law – the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) protects the right of Illinois residents to maintain privacy and control over their biometric data, including fingerprints, face scans, voiceprints, and more. Companies and employers must first have written consent to collect this information, and Illinois residents can take legal action against those who recorded their biometric data without consent and can be eligible to receive up to $5,000 per violation.


Consumers and employees have rights to their personal biometric privacy under Illinois law. If you have had your fingerprint, face, voice, or eye scanned or recorded to verify your identity, you are likely affected, and we would like to investigate further.  Potential claims could include the following:

  • Were you required via mobile app to verify your identity by providing a selfie and/or photograph of your ID?
  • Were you made to verify your identity by voice through customer support calls?
  • Did you provide your fingerprint to a company, including your employer that required you to check into work via a faceprint or fingerprint scan?
  • Were you required to verify your ID via eye or retina scan?

BIPA established a standard of how companies must handle Illinois residents’ personal biometric information. The law provides for as much as $5,000 in liquidated damages for every willful or reckless violation and $1,000 for every negligent violation.

Our legal team has taken on some of the largest companies in the world regarding privacy rights, and we believe individuals have a right to their own data, information security and confidentiality. Taking legal action under BIPA ensures that companies will be held accountable for violating your privacy rights, at a time when your data matters. Our legal team will fight for your rights to compensation under Illinois law for any loss of privacy you experienced.
