Yeah, and maybe too much to random passersby too!

But that is exactly what the US government wanted when it pushed the civil aviation organisation to adopt the "international standards". As for the opportunity of the RFID chips to act like blabbermouth, it is being proven to be very likely that information will be freely given away, and that it can be very easily decrypted by criminals.

Yes, the fact that the new RFID chips can be used as tracking devices and can be picked up by radio frequency is bad enough. The introduction of biometric scanning systems is appauling with the use of fingerprinting, face recognition and iris scans. I am currently 17 and I want to be able to travel in the future without being treated like a criminal at overseas airports let alone my own countries airport.

I will never get a passport as I Will bever give any Gov't that much information. ..... They are still trying to get me to fill out a cenus... Screw em
Passports only restrict honest people. Crooks just buy one to suit - pseudo-refugees flush 'em down the bog - why bother with them?
foreign governments can find out what ever they want anyhow. follow me for a week and you'll know. this just makes it cheaper.
Are you kidding? I can't afford one!
