Hidden Spy-chips in your Home – Is your Home Bugged?
(This may sound Far-fetched – BUT- Science fiction is NO Longer fiction)
Advancing technologies such as the RFID microchip are making this easily possible. Most people today are aware that items such as bank cards/records, medical records, passports, driver licenses, elderly people, Alzheimer patients, pets, cell phones etc are embedded with the microchips.
All these items can also be interlinked with each other within the RFID networks.
The microchip is often smaller than a grain of rice and operates like a computer, receiving/sending/storing data, recording in real time, tracking and used for many medical applications including medicine delivery, enabling deaf people to hear, paraplegics to move limbs and organ monitoring.
These tiny chips can communicate from a remote source within the wireless networks such as Wifi, satellite, cell towers etc.
Many technologies today are embedded with tiny microchips that communicate through these wireless networks. These technologies are around us all the time – When out and about – In the work place & in the home environment.
We don’t usually look at our electronics in the home and think of whats inside it. Our main concern is that the item works. But the day has come to take notice of the advancing list of technologies embedded with RFID chips and the growing list of capabilities these chips have.
Microchips Everywhere – A Future Vision
Microchips with antennas will be embedded in virtually everything you buy, wear, drive and read, allowing retailers and law enforcement to track consumer items and consumers wherever they go – from a distance.
A seamless, global network of electronic “sniffers” will scan radio tags in myriad public settings, identifying people and their tastes instantly so that customized ads, “live spam,” may be beamed at them.
- Many freedoms & privacies of citizens are being lost due to many governments across the world continuing to change legislation – enabling exchange of information within departments, to private organisations and is not limited to just within your country.
It can also be shared or accessed by foreign countries – often without the consent or knowledge of the individual – YOU.
This relates to…
- Any data held about you on electronic files – eg: Medical records, Bank details, Credit card information & any records about you within any government department.
- Any information you give in any computer, phone app based searches is monitored and stored.
- Everything you do on social networking sites is monitored & stored.
- Emails and text messages are monitored stored and can be intercepted.
- Informations & conversations on many internet based call programmes is monitored, recorded, stored.
Basic overview of RFID: There are many different types of radio frequency identification technologies. This article explains the difference between active and passive tags and between low, high and ultra-high frequency systems… More here.
RFID embedded items can Track and/or Record Movements
One of the most frequently voiced concerns about RFID technology involves its use in the commercial context. Most consumer products today are embedded with RFID tags/components which constitutes its most widespread usage and therefore affects the largest number of people.
- Tracking your moves – RFID opponents argue that extensive commercial use could “create a total surveillance world” by using RFID tags on items purchased by consumers to track citizens anywhere in the country.
- RFID tags are attached to consumer goods such as clothing or shoes – enables wearers to be tracked everywhere they go.
- Another concern is that if all the items in citizens’ homes have RFID tags, then a person passing by, whether a potential criminal or a police officer, could point an RFID reader into the home and learn the contents of the home.
- Tracked by cell phone technology – One example – Broadcom has just rolled out a chip for smart phones that promises to indicate location ultra-precisely, possibly within a few centimeters, vertically and horizontally, indoors and out… More
The MicroChip Invasion, Spy Chips in your Home
The CIA wants to spy on you through your TV: Agency director says it will ‘transform’ surveillance
Is your Television watching YOU? Smart TVs can Spy on their Owners
A security firm has discovered a glitch in Samsung’s Smart TV that “can give hackers access to the device’s built-in camera and microphones, allowing them to watch everything you do,” RT.com reported recently.
NSA spying flap extends to contents of U.S. phone calls
National Security Agency discloses in secret Capitol Hill briefing that thousands of analysts can listen to domestic phone calls. That authorization appears to extend to e-mail and text messages too.
DHS Looks to Spy on Video Game Consoles in Search of Pedophiles, Terrorists
The government is more concerned with the platforms rather than the games themselves, mainly because newer systems like Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation 3 allow users to communicate with one another via messaging and chat systems.
That’s No Phone. That’s My Tracker
THE device in your purse or jeans that you think is a cellphone — guess again. It is a tracking device that happens to make calls. Thanks to the explosion of GPS technology and smartphone apps, these devices are also taking note of:
What we buy
- Where and when we buy it
- How much money we have in the bank
- Whom we text and e-mail
- What Web sites we visit
- How and where we travel
- What time we go to sleep and wake up — and more.
Tracking Junior With a Microchip
Linking the Human Brain to Computer Technology is…
No Longer Science Fiction!
These micorchip technologies with all the above risks are already being implanted into the human body for various medical reasons. Even though it’s well known that adequate safety and security issues haven’t been addressed properly. There is also talk of RFID implantation being made mandatory for every Man – Woman & Child.

Please NOTE: When something starts in the U.S – It doesn’t take long for other countries to follow suit.
