HOME TESCO spychips ABOUT What's WRONG? SOUND off FIGHT back PRESS

What Is RFID?

RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, a technology that hooks miniature antennas up to tiny computer chips smaller than a grain of sand to track items at a distance.

Because of their stealthy potential, we have nicknamed these chips "Spychips." When a spychip is combined with an antenna, it creates a tracking "tag."

RFID Spychips have been hidden in products on shelves at Tesco, and they have already been used to spy on consumers.

Have you already taken an RFID Spychip home with you? It's time to ask Tesco if there's a tag in your bag.

TESCO Snaps Your Photo?

As reported in the London Times and the Guardian, hidden cameras at Tesco have taken mug shots of people picking up products with Spychips. Now, the press reports that Tesco "expects to finalize a deal within weeks for the purchase of millions of [RFID] tags." It's time to take a stand.
