But University of Wollongong professor Katina Michael warned the tatts and pills could easily be tampered with and were “an invasion of bodily privacy.”

“Everyone is trying to find a solution to the password problem, but by inviting the password problem into the body or on to the body, we’re magnifying the problem,” Michael said.
