Mexico to Begin Fingerprinting Cell Phone Users

In a bid to nab crooks who are using cell phones for extortion and kidnapping ransoms, Mexico will begin a national registry of cell users complete with fingerprints. The new law is set to be put into force in April.

According to the law, cell companies have a year to create a database of their users, along with prints. Since most phones in Mexico are prepaid, users would be required to submit prints with a new contract or the purchase of more minutes.

Cell carriers would also be forced to keep a log of all calls, texts and voicemails for a year. Only court approval would let the information be used.
