    However, there is a slight difference though:
    In case of private companies collecting the info the data more or less is de-centralized and a choice by user(ie not using Facebook at all)

    Collecting such info by government is who is making this mandatory and forcing it to residents is a different matter.

    Do you have a credit card that you use or a bank debit card?

    The merits of this escape me. With three little cards I can prove my identify, confirm my address, verify I'm of legal age, show I am legal to drive, that I qualify for medical care and have money/credit. It makes little sense to instead carry a smart phone the smallest of which is larger than those three little cards.

    My wallet never needs a recharge, has never died unexpectedly, doesn't need a password, be within range of a tower or require a monthly payment to a telecom company. If I fall into a river my cards will still work my smart phone not so much. My wallet is impervious to electromagnetic fields, radiation and remote hackers unlike my phone.

    As for the information aspect, the government isn't collecting the info. Government has it already. This proposed system is just another way for you to access your information and provide it others when necessary.

    I think the reality is the large majority of people always have their phone with them, but at times its nice to not have to carry your wallet.
    Just an option which will be handy for many, if its not for you, then don't use it.

    I find it funny that people think their lives are so interesting that someone somewhere is spending time following all they do. Whoever is tracking me is a very bored person.

    It sure does if you couple it with a vaccine passport.

    I think there are times it's nice not to have to carry your phone. You don't even need a wallet just three little cards and your covered.

    I'm not doing anything or going anywhere that I don't mind someone else knowing. My phone locator is always on. Google sends me a review of everywhere I've been once a month.

    Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.
