Recently, the government has once again relaxed restrictions on dine-in meals, and the FEHD has also launched an “electronic needle card” QR code scanning application for premises to verify the vaccination records of customers. However, according to a report from the Now news station recently, it was discovered that without using this application, scanning with the built-in camera of the mobile phone can display more personal information, including surnames, some names, and some ID numbers.

Recently, the FEHD launched the “Electronic Needle Card” QR code scanning application for premises to verify the vaccination records of customers. The program only displays a tick to show that the customer has been vaccinated. According to the government’s earlier statement, the application does not read citizens’ personal data. However, according to the Now News Station report, it was found that without using this application, casually using other mobile phone built-in lens scanning can display more personal information, surname and part of the name, part of the ID number, and what kind of vaccine to receive.At present, the FEHD application is only uploaded to the website of the department as an APK file, and is not available in the application store.

Some IT experts estimate that the QR code may be used for entry into other countries in the future.

Since the QR code of the “electronic pin card” can be used to obtain some personal information, we remind everyone not to disclose the QR Code of the pin card, such as the Post pin card to the Internet, to protect personal privacy information.
