MasterCard’s new “digital ID” project has a dystopian feature that allows for disturbing tracking and monitoring of the public.

The payment processing giant’s so-called “Community Pass” project will allow governments to monitor the “health” of individuals and track their vaccination status.

Mastercard’s executive vice president Tara Nathan, who is leading the project, claims the system is designed to help integrate marginalized communities into the digital world.

However, the project has only managed to attract 3.5 million voluntary users so far.

Yet skeptics of digital ID plans may wonder about the project’s real reach and intentions as “Community Pass” prepares to expand into partnering with governments.
