Re: [Rant] 24 hour fitness has my fingerprints
said by retired17:You sound like a conspiracy theorist.
From what I have gather from all your responses, you wouldn't mind the credit card company requiring you to have your fingerprints scanned everytime you make a purchase at a store. My point is that for now government is collecting data on you, now businesses are starting to do the same thing. Where's my freedom?
What is the government do with all this data? Kill us with it?
I sure as hell hope they let us scan our fingerprints when we pay with a CC. It will make the signature panel, which is already useless, obsolete, and implement a real form of security.

It isn't even business' collecting data or building a profile on one, it's the insurance companies I am afraid of. All those discount cards ya get at you favorite stores does more than give discounts, it collects a database of all you purchases then is sold for big money. Insurance companies in the future will have the right to cancel your emergency liver failure request for a new liver because of all those scotch purchases at your local bottle king store for the past 35 years. finger printing is not even the half of it when it comes to profiling each person or building databases on everyone.
fingerprinting isnt all that secure either, it too can be spoofed like a mac address. So don't think all this stuff being implemented in the future is for our better good, to protect us, or to prevent identity theft, it's just a way to sell the idea of databseing everyone for other reasons and money is the main one.
I'd take better security over ease of use or speed of use any day.
