Chip implants are an emerging technology. But some technology experts are worried that hackers might be able to hack subdermal chip implants.


This article by Zhanna L. Malekos Smith, writing for The Hill, makes the following points:
  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips identify transponders with unique identification numbers.
  • They can be tagged with user data such as health records, social media profiles, and financial information.
  • Over 50,000 people have a surgically inserted chip as their new swipe key or credit card.
  • Like any device, subdermal chips have security vulnerabilities that could be hacked.
