ISRAEL - Electronic Bracelet Privacy Concerns

Arno Froese

While electronic bracelets are a preferable alternative to enforced isolation in COVID-19 “hotels,” it is important to explicitly define the purpose for which these bracelets are to be used, to restrict access to the data they produce, and to maintain a high level of security regarding this sensitive personal information.

Intelligent speed adaptation systems are also constantly monitoring our location, though the bracelets tend to be based on more accurate technology than that used for cellphone location monitoring, and as a result, are much more intrusive. 

In the current case, infringement of the right to privacy is preferable to infringement of the right to freedom of movement.

Like all the policy ideas that have been quickly cooked up in the course of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the use of electronic bracelets raises several questions that currently have no answers.

Arno's Commentary

The issue is control by restrictions, while conveniently harvesting important personal data. Another sign of the end times.

Israel is the most successful country when it comes to immunizing its citizens, yet that is just the beginning. Several scientists have already prognosticated that more, presently unidentifiable viruses are on the way. Thus, the control of people based on gathered information is almost irreversible.

Bible students realize that this unifying of the people of the world is an imitation of the Church, who is already unified through God the Holy Spirit. When the last from among the Gentiles is added to this spiritual temple, this habitation of God, she will be taken possession of by the Bridegroom and removed from planet earth. And then there will be utter darkness.
