As reported by Ina Fried at All Things D, eight members of the Congressional Privacy Caucus have asked Google CEO Larry Page to address whether the device will use facial recognition software; what privacy steps the company is taking to protect bystanders and how Glass will fit into the companies existing privacy policies.

Google has said it does not have facial recognition in Glass yet (but they can see it happening,) and that the company’s current privacy policy is sufficient.
