Since 2008 there have been over 4.5 million transactions. There have been six reported incidents of facial recognition equipment making a false match, four of which were established to be false alarms. On the remaining two occasions the false matches were detected immediately by Border officers and no breach of the border occurred. System changes were put in place to improve the performance of the equipment following these two incidents.
