Taylor Swift: Facial recognition 'used to ID stalkers' at show

Part of me regretted not going out of my way to get a ticket to see her in concert earlier this year, so this documentary couldn't have come along at a better time.

As reported by Rolling Stone, the venue featured a kiosk which played a highlight reel of Swift's rehearsals but also had a bunch of cameras attached to it.

Taylor Swift is bringing her Reputation tour to Netflix.

I'm not gonna lie: I love me some Taylor Swift, and not in a shameful guilty pleasure way. There, the images were compared to a database of "hundreds" of Taylor's known stalkers, concert security expert Mike Downing, who watched the technology work that night at the concert, told Rolling Stone.

The security may seem a little extreme, but last week one of Swift's stalkers, Roger Alvarado, was sentenced to serve six months in prison after he broke into her apartment in New York City.

Just a few days before, another man was arrested outside her home in Beverly Hills wearing a mask and rubber gloves.

That same month, Mohammed Jaffar was sentenced to six months in jail and five years' probation after he was convicted of burglary after he appeared at Taylor's NY apartment five times in two months. "The entire concert film will premiere on @netflix at 12:01AM PST December 31".
