I wrote a few years ago about how to foil biometric data gathering while shopping.
Now, biometric data collection is out in the open and even considered cool by those consumers already embracing it.
In a scenario that seems straight out of the Book of Revelation, people are paying for their groceries at Whole Foods by scanning the palm of their hand. (1, 2)
Forgot your purse at home? No worries slave! No credit card or phone is needed.
Biometric payment can be done one of two ways:
- Implanting a chip in your hand (most people won’t do this … at least not yet).
- Enroll in Amazon One and connect it to your Amazon Prime account. Wave your palm over an Amazon One Palm Scanner at Whole Foods and voilà. You can now pay for your groceries with “mark of the beast” convenience.
By the end of 2023, all Whole Foods will have this “feature” in place for the convenience (enslavement?) of their unwitting customers.
My recommendation is NOT to enroll in this program and for heaven’s sake, DO NOT scan your palm at Whole Foods so that your biometrics is in their database.
Protect your biometrics folks. Something that is convenient today could be used as a weapon later. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Of course, Amazon assures us that you can “trust Amazon One” and that your data is “safe” and won’t be shared or sold to anyone else.
Famous last words!
Excuse me, but only fools would put their trust in corporations, especially one with such a predatory history. Trust is for people, not brands!
Here’s the spin designed to dupe you into signing up and getting your palm scanned.
Through Amazon One, you have a unique palm signature that is securely stored on AWS Cloud and completely encrypted. Without your consent, your palm scan cannot be replicated or used. Amazon promises not to sell this information to third parties, marketing companies, or government agencies. (3)
Don’t you just love the “Amazon promises” line? I remember a few other things Amazon “promised” not to do, yet they did it within a few short years down the road because the business climate “changed”.
Check out the video below of this influencer paying for her Whole Foods groceries with her palm and thinking it’s “the coolest thing ever”.
Just wow. It seems that as long as the chains that bind are convenient and comfy, people will gladly accept and even embrace them.
I’ll keep spending my food dollars locally with farmers and independent businesses and shopping as little as possible with these predatory globalist corporations.
