UK companies may implant employees with microchips

Even more worring that like bank cards can be skimmed/copied an easy hack to gain access to places things shouldn't be able to, and no id required what a great idea.

It's RFID, people. They cannot "track" you like 90% of you are hyperbolically going on about. It's EXTREMELY SHORT RANGE. Unless you're shaking hands with government agents, how are they going to get at your hand? Have you ever noticed that your other RFID devices don't unlock or activate unless they're centimeters away from the scanner?

If it can be reprogrammed when I leave a job and I can use it at my next job, then sign me up. It's one less thing I need to carry on me or accidentally forget about. My last two jobs have had RFID badges for getting into the building and rooms, and I cannot tell you how many times I left it at my desk or at home.

Then we get into the whole "mark of the beast" nut jobs. Give me a break.

Also, that range? Yeah, a few centimeters is BS. Passive RFID can be read up to 600 feet away with the right tools

So you ware willing to risk blood infection so you dont have to carry an ID card with you? Give me a break.

ID cards dont cost very much. Doing this to "save money" is a cop-out excuse. We have seen, time and time again, governments and corporations take what seems like innocuous things and turn them into ways to control the people. Why would this be any different? How do you know this is only an RFID chip? We have seen how easily the chinese can hide tracking chips into thousands of servers and keep them hidden for YEARS. It would be trivial for this to have some longer range form of tracking. They do it in cats and dogs already.

You risk a blood infection when you have anything penetrate your skin.

Getting a flu shot? Blood infection risk. Getting a tattoo? Blood infection risk. Accidentally stab yourself with a pen? Blood infection risk.

Who cares if the Chinese are hiding RFID chips in servers? What does that have to do with people? I'm not following.

Nope, you can get into the whole religious "mark of the beast" stuff if you want but, if my company
I work for, does not TRUST me, then I don't want to work for them anyway. Plus, fingerprint/retina
scanner should be enough.
This is just another crack in your privacy.
"But, it will only be used for work, your house/car...for your convenience!
Yeah, they said you could keep your healthcare, the social security number would never be used
for ID purposes too.
And, once this becomes mainstream, you know good and well, the "government" will put RFID
receivers all over the place, to track your travel, and, use it for contact-less payments to refuse
something you wish to purchase because "it isn't good for you" once the One World UN takes
everything over by 2030, according to THEIR statements.
In that 'utopia' scenario, I'll move to some deserted island, assuming I can travel there without v74 chip installed in my body before being allowed to board...

Oh, I remembered a company that contacted me after I put a chip in my cat. This company can get the frequency and "track" the little bugger if he gets out and runs away ...... so, me thinks, exactly what is the difference between the pet chip and the one they want to put in these folks arms??? Don't kid yourself, when 5G gets to be all the rage with the kind of distances they are boasting you very well may see an effort through the Social Security Administration to make this the "new" social security card or a similar effort and then you can kiss off ANY kind of privacy .......
The difference is, animals can't talk, and ID's can be removed. So there is a necessity there I believe.

So... how does one with this implant get an MRI? Right off the bat, I see that as a complication - or are the companies just assuming that the waiting lines because of NIH will make this a non-issue?

Those Companies are liable for the security of those individuals. The very 1st lawsuit, such intrusive things will be laughed at by the populace.

Oh, another company tracked me... lawsuit. Nothing about this is secure for the person, only the financial aspects of aspects of a company.

Luckily, that can't happen stateside. And if the UK government weren't so corrupt, UK citizens wouldn't need to worry about this kind of fascist nonsense either. It's a violation of basic human rights.
"That can't happen here" goes right alongside to "We'll fix it later" as far as famous last words go. There's nothing that outright prevents this, and if there's a way for companies to save money, they will absolutely go for this.
