The UK government is preparing to rollout a new "digital health passport" to monitor nearly every aspect of citizens' lives in the name of strengthening public health management.
British cybersecurity firm VST Enterprises, in partnership with the UK government, developed an application called "COVI-PASS" to track "your Covid-19 test history and immunoresponse and other relevant health information" using a proprietary matrix code called a "VCode."
The COVI-PASS website bills the tech as "the World's most secure Digital Health Passport, built on patented technology, awarded the 'Seal of Excellence' by the European Commission and being used by various United Nations Projects."
The "VCode" itself is described as an end-all tech that can store every sensitive detail about your life using military-grade encryption software.
"Assign any form of information to your own VCode® securely. Your VCode® can store anything from identity details, in case of emergency information, health records, payment methods, car registration numbers, business card details, social media links and much more all from the same code."
