New Mexican law to fingerprint all prepaid mobile phone users

Posted on Wednesday, February 11 2009 @ 00:35:00 CET by


Under a new law published Monday, Mexico will start a national register of mobile phone users by fingerprinting all customers in an effort to catch criminals who use mobile phone to extort money and negotiate kidnapping ransoms. The new law, which will be in force this April, will give mobile phone companies a year to build the database of their clients - complete with fingerprints and any other personally identifiably information. Most of the phones in Mexico are prepaid phones which can be bought and more minutes added without giving personal information - but that will now change. Any new subscribers will be fingerprinted when they buy a "throw-away phone".
