Human microchipping is a way of implanting an integrated circuit device or RFID transponder encased inside a silicate glass and implanted inside the human body. The chip contains a unique ID number which stores data about the individual's identity, law enforcement, medical history and contact information etc.

Coinratecap gathered information on people who have had RFID implanted in their body or witnessed anyone who may have had it and their experiences as well as scientists and individual opinions on human microchipping.

Firstly let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of human microchipping.

Now let's take a look at people's stories and views on human microchipping:

I'm Greg Scott, the short answer to implantation of human microchipping is no. Do I really need to spell out the dangers of RFID readers everywhere and databases that track everything there is to know about us?聽

I was frustrated in 2014 with headline after headline about companies who allowed attackers to steal my personal information, and so I decided to do something about it. I wrote Bullseye Breach: Anatomy of an Electronic Break-In to show how Russian mobsters stole 40 million customer credit card numbers from a fictional retailer, Bullseye Stores. And Virus Bomb shows what might happen if attackers really do get serious about penetrating an industry and stealing secrets.聽

Back in 2017, a company in River Falls, Wisconsin named Three Square Markets set up a program to implant employees with RFID tags. The company CEO and his family led the way. It's a whole company around surveillance and connecting people to the internet. Apparently, it's profitable. Some say it's innovative. Here's a recentarticle.


As for me, I'll go to prison or worse before I ever allow anyone to implant one of those things under my skin, or under the skin of anyone in my family. I wrote a blog post about this back in 2017 when the Three Square Markets story was in the news. Here's anews link.


A society where people have identity chips implanted under their skin to make buying and selling easier? Not a society I want to be part of.聽

Yes and no. Two thumbs up to microchipping those suffering from聽memory-impaired conditions, like Alzheimer鈥檚, dementia, aphasia, etc. These聽folks pretty have lost their ability to communicate and let鈥檚 face it, they聽tend to wander off the beaten path more frequently. That said, limit the聽amount of information on the chip. I give the green light to include name,聽
age, address, phone number(s), pertinent health information like allergies,聽and guardian鈥檚 info. Any more info is TMI and Nunya. I would slam the聽brakes on all other scenarios for implanting identity chips, especially聽
when it comes to including sensitive financial information. With all the聽data breaches, identify thefts and credit card fraud in the digital world,聽it鈥檚 obvious that this is only getting worse. We worry about Big Brother聽(aka the government) monitoring us. But other intruders have joined the聽鈥渃lub.鈥 If we cannot secure our information on a laptop or smartphone, why聽should we put trust in a chip the size of a grain of rice embedded under聽our skin? Back to the drawing board, my friends!聽

It depends. As for benefits, it provides a rich repository of information available - from bank balance to medical details like allergies, medication. It may replace your passport or other ID information and would streamline processes at airports, or even help to track the person if he/she is lost or kidnapped. As for limitations, there is no universal microchip that can work for all the systems; also implants can catch a virus, migrate in the body and get displaced.聽

YES! Identity chips = safe dates: From a woman鈥檚 perspective, I think we鈥檇 be a lot safer if everyone was identity chipped. That way, when a guy asks you out, you can read his chip, Google him, and know exactly who he is. As it stands now, new acquaintances can lie as much as they want鈥 And you might never find out. People go on dates with total strangers鈥 On blind faith. That puts them at risk. Microchipping would lead to less lying and more safety.聽
