    You know that everything you write here is connected to your IP address and connected to you, the QR code does not change anything with respect to tracking.

    You need to look into the digital passport and what it will bring into your life in regards to social credit scores, etc.
    They are rolling out a one size fits all product for a global economy.
    Cellphones right now are piece meal and vary by country and carrier.
    In fact, over 1 billion people worldwide do not have one.
    Gang members use "burner phones"
    This makes "Big Brother" very upset.

    Do you really want AI to have full control over every aspect of your life?

    It affects what data you now have on your phone (passport numbers, vaccine status, travel info etc) that is readily available.

    What would be the purpose of tracking everyone? Is the average person all that important to track? Technology like this would require vast amounts of data storage, is it even possible to track the entire population.

    Most tracking is done already like mentioned through your phone. Also you internet usage. Also your financial transactions. It is an information super highway world we live in.

    These are valid points re some level of tracking already in place (cookies, IP address, cell phone location data, credit/debit transactions).

    But there are measures in place to mitigate the invasiveness of such things.

    With internet, you can use VPN's to block an IP address. Disabling or limiting cookies (and clearing them), private browsing, ad blockers, using a computer without a web cam (or covering your webcam), not browsing while logged in to your email account or social media accounts, not having social media accounts with 100's of personal family photos available forever to everyone on the internet, and so on. Even if an IP address is identified there is no proof it is you behind a given computer. These things prevent targeted ads based on your browsing activity and ISP's selling this data to 3rd parties.

    With your phone, disabling location services, not downloading or using certain apps, and so on. Using a non-smart phone. Even though all cell phone locations can be tracked by them pinging cell towers, this usually requires intervention from police or government bodies. These extra hurdles required to jump through are only really entertained when investigating a crime for example, and would be exhausting and illegal to go through for everyone.

    Paying cash is an obvious way to transact off the record.

    But people love the convenience of just tapping a card.

    Some say "well if you're not doing anything wrong you have nothing to hide" and while I agree, that's not the point. We still should and do have reasonable expectations of privacy, even in our fast-paced digital age. It's like saying "I know what a human body looks like naked so you might as well stop wearing clothes in public." Or "I don't have anything illegal in my house so i have no problem letting police in without a warrant." These would be examples of an unusual and unnecessary acceleration of privacy loss.

    A QR code app that's specifically designed to track your usage and whereabouts and make data collection easier for governing bodies by amalgamating everything you do into one thing, that you willingly download (or that you are forced to download) -- that's a different ball of wax altogether.

    And this works both ways, as the attached meme illustrates.

    Actually it does. It allows easy immediate centralized access to information that currently is dispersed and tedious to collect. It also makes this centralized information available to entities that currently don't have access, every time you flash your QR code you are providing all the information it contains. Finally, and likely the real goal, is the ease with which this revealing personal information can be used against the individual.

    "sorry sir, we cannot insure you because of your genetic predisposition to X disease"

    "Sorry sir, you cannot own a hunting weapon because your mental health history says you needed a therapy session at 14 when someone close to you died"
