Up to 3,000 citizens have already been introduced to microchips in Sweden, which includes ID card, bank card and license functions.In the last 3 years, about 3,000 Swedish citizens have had microchips implanted in their bodies. This was reported by euronews, citing AFP.
According to the TV channel, the rice grain size device will be implanted in a person's hand with the help of a syringe. The chip has many functions: it records the user's personal data, it also acts as an electronic key, and the owner can use it to enter the office or gym. However, the owner's bank details are also marked on the device, so he can pay with a simple hand.
However, the program's skeptics point out that stealing personal data from a hand-held microchip is very easy. Nevertheless, the popularity of microchips in Sweden is growing. According to experts, this is due to the fact that Sweden is a small country in which most citizens trust the government.
