PayPal’s global head of developer evangelism, Jonathan LeBlanc, states that PayPal is creating “natural body identification” devices to replace passwords, which you either ingest or have injected or embedded into your body.
These could include everything from brain implants to wafer-thin silicon chips that’s embedded into your skin to ingestible devices with batteries powered by stomach acid.
As we’ve seen, even high-flying politicians like John Podesta work on sensitive material while exercising terrible email security, so it may be a worthwhile idea to have a better security protocol in some cases, but implanted or ingested ID may be a step too far for most consumers.
On the other side, of course, are the many unintended negative consequences of requiring people to adopt such ID schemes.
