44% of Americans Now Using Biometrics Instead of Passwords to Log In to Their Accounts – We are Closer to a One World Financial System
by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News
A new report published by the FIDO Alliance states that 44 percent of Americans are now logging in to their online accounts with biometrics, rather than a password, and more than half of Americans today, 58 percent, state that they are interested in replacing their passwords with biometric passkeys.
FIDO Alliance has published a report examining how the behavior, patterns and adoption of authentication technologies reflect the consumers’ readiness for passwordless technologies.
According to the report, passwords are still the most common way to access an account, but biometrics, such as a face scan or fingerprints, are preferred over all other methods by 29 percent. Only 19 percent prefer to use a password. While 44 percent say they log in to accounts with biometrics, 64 percent use passwords.
The report reveals consumer awareness and passkey demand have increased since the Fall of 2022. Fifty-eight percent of U.S. consumers are interested in passwordless technology, and 47 percent say they are somewhat familiar with passkeys.
According to the report, most customers have abandoned a shopping cart in the past six months because they forgot their password. (Source.)
The FIDO Alliance report clearly states who is pushing the adoption of biometric passkeys at the beginning of their report:
It’s been a year since Apple, Google and Microsoft announced their commitment to passkeys with plans to expand support for a common passwordless sign-in standard created by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium. (Source.)
The FIDO Alliance leadership and members are comprised of the biggest names in Big Tech and the financial sector, including Amazon.com, Microsoft, Google, Apple, Meta, Intel, Yahoo, American Express, Mastercard, Visa, Paypal, CVSHealth, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, Wells Fargo, and many others.
The most widespread biometric ID system currently being rolled out in many locations across the U.S. today is probably Amazon’s palm scanning system called “Amazon One.”
A report published by Gizmodo today states that Amazon’s palm scanning technology has now been updated to record your age, so you can purchase alcohol now without an ID by just letting them scan your hand.
Amazon’s Palm-Scanning Tech Also Knows How Old You Are
Amazon One, the palm scanning tech that you can use to pay at Panera, has gotten an upgrade. The payment technology can now verify the age of its user, allowing customers to purchase drinks without having to pull out their IDs.
Amazon announced the new feature today on its website. The company said that the age verification feature was designed to solve the “customer pain point” of using your hand to pay for alcohol only to have to pull out your wallet anyway to flash your ID.
When a 21+ customer places their hand over an Amazon One point-of-sale device, the software will process the payment as well as verify that the customer is of legal age. Amazon says that Coors Field, the Denver-based baseball stadium and home of the Colorado Rockies, will be the first place to utilize Amazon One’s palm-based age verification. (Full Article.)
Do people realize that when they avail of this technology, they are letting Amazon.com know when, where, and how much alcohol they are purchasing?
Do you think police and other law enforcement officers might find this data useful if they pull you over in a routine traffic stop? Or they might just scan your license plate and pull you over simply because you just purchased too much alcohol within the past few hours at your local bar or restaurant, and they have access to your Amazon One account.
Big Tech’s “Fintech” Banking Apps – Modern Day Slavery
Silicon Valley has been encroaching into the financial sector for many years now, appealing to the masses that the “old ways” of doing banking are antiquated, and that by using their new technology products (referred to as “Fintech”) one can avoid the limitations of the banking industry such as having to pay “late fees” or even spending money you don’t even have in your account yet, such as advances on your future payroll deposits.
Their commercials appeal to the masses, particularly minorities, many of whom feel that the system is holding them back (which it is, but not for the reasons Fintech is saying).
Watch these two commercials for the app “Chime”. They lead you to believe that the only things holding you back from financial freedom and even the ability to start your own business are banking fees and restrictions.
As a business owner in the U.S. for over 25 years now, let me assure you, that being able to spend money you don’t have yet, is NOT empowering, but enslaving.
Watch this report from a local news station in Georgia about how Chime has enslaved some people by seizing their funds and not allowing them access to their accounts.
Big Tech is your enemy, not your friend, because their goal is NOT to empower you, but to enslave you and control you, making you dependent upon them.
Biometrics and AI are Being Used to Create a New World Order Financial System to Enslave You
As I reported yesterday, the latest fad in the field of biometrics is Sam Altman’s Worldcoin system and their “Orb” to scan people’s eyes to create a unique “World ID”. See:

Worldcoin is apparently being developed on the Ethereum cryptocurrency blockchain, which unlike the older Bitcoin, can be scaled to handle many transactions in real time.
Hudson Jameson, a former Ethereum developer, is sounding the alarm on Altman’s Worldcoin.
Ex-Ethereum Developer Warns About Open AI Founder’s Worldcoin, Says It Lacks Transparency
A former Ethereum developer has raised the alarm on the upcoming crypto asset Worldcoin, as he observed that the plans for the coin are “unrealistic and scary” and its tokenomics is “suspicious.”
Hudson Jameson, who currently works at the software and creative services provider Polygon Labs, shared his opinion on Worldcoin, the upcoming cryptocurrency pioneered by Sam Altman, the American entrepreneur and programmer who is also the CEO of the hit artificial intelligence (AI) bot ChatGPT.
ChatGPT took the world by storm when it was launched last November and any businessman knows that the other profitable thing to do with a popular product is to piggyback on its fame.
Capitalizing on ChatGPT and the emerging industry of cryptocurrency, it was announced a few days ago that Altman’s Worldcoin crypto project is nearing $100 million in funding.
Worldcoin, the iris-scanning technology Altman tapped to create a secure global cryptocurrency, is currently in talks to raise fresh funding. It is planned to launch in the next few weeks.
But while many are excited about the launch of this new cryptocurrency, some industry watchers and high-profile personalities are not exactly thrilled.
One of them is Jameson who expressed his uncertainty about Worldcoin’s ambitious plans to onboard millions of users by 2025, as well as the project’s transparency.
“Beyond the tech. and orb, Worldcoin’s team’s plans are unrealistic and scary. I am less worried about the cutting-edge zk tech. being built, but am skeptical about the rollout since I’ve heard some team members talk about onboarding 10s of millions of people post-launch by 2025,” the former Ethereum core developer said.
Raising concerns about the transparency of the project, Jamesson said, “Last I checked, I’ve seen 0 indications they have publicly accessible plans to deal with the huge socio-economic issues that are going to vary [from] region to region. There also isn’t a working group where they are inviting experts on this. If there is, there is 0 advertising of it.”
The developer also questioned the project’s tokenomics and called it suspicious.
“Worldcoin’s tokenomics are also suspicious since only 80% of the coins are going to the public, with 10% going to investors and 10% to the team. How is that going to create a fair worldwide currency? Is there any analysis from them on preventing wealth gaps in certain areas,” he further said. (Full article.)
Like Hudson Jameson, I too am concerned that Worldcoin, World App, and World ID have a direct correlation with Sam Altman’s other product, ChatGPT.
We are beginning to see a familiar theme now with those in Big Tech who are stoking up the public’s fears over AI.
AI is most certainly a threat to society, but they know all too well that AI will never replace humans, or at least not anytime soon.
But they are obviously feeding into this fear, and so are most in the Alternative Media, whether wittingly or unwittingly, as they continue to publish this propaganda.
For example, this was a title in my newsfeed today: MRI Scans and AI Technology Really Could Read What We’re Thinking — The Implications are Terrifying.
This is pure B.S. garbage.
Technology can monitor and record parts of our brain in terms of neurons firing and things like that, but our thoughts do not even originate in our brain, but in our hearts, and they most certainly cannot be read by computers or AI. See:
The Brain Myth: Your Intellect and Thoughts Originate in Your Heart, Not Your Brain
But this kind of thinking fits right in with what the real goals are with AI, which is to push everyone on to biometrics where people willingly give up their unique biodata, in order to “prove” they are human.
If you watch the 1-minute video I included above explaining Amazon’s palm-scanning system for biometrics, take note of some of the phrases they used to encourage people to let Amazon have scans of their palms:
“What if all Zoe needed, was herself?”
“Amazon One will help you get more things done, simply by being you.”
This is exactly the mantra that Sam Altman is using to push Worldcoin and World ID and getting people to voluntarily let him scan their eyeballs – to prove you are human and not an AI.
And sadly, most Americans are falling for this, and are voluntarily surrendering their unique biodata to Big Tech.
If this trend continues, biometric scanning and a World ID will probably become mandatory to participate in the New World Order financial system.
The One World Unified Beast Financial System
The system to produce a new one-world financial system is already in place, and it could happen now a lot quicker than most people realize.
The key event that really kicked off these plans into overdrive, was the release of ChatGPT last November, where hundreds of millions of people downloaded the app, making it the fastest downloaded app in history.
As I have previously reported, Sam Altman’s trip to Washington D.C. to appear before Congress last week resulted in everyone agreeing that AI now needs to be regulated.
And the organizations and system to regulate it are already in place. It will be similar to how the FDA “regulates” pharmaceutical products, by letting the pharmaceutical industry set the rules and effectively “regulate” themselves.
The foundation for this new world single financial system was laid during COVID, where the world’s fear over a “virus” made them willingly give up their freedoms to “protect” them against the “unseen enemy.”
Now, the enemy is AI, which is being advertised as developing into an intelligence that is greater than humans, where AI can just decide to wipe out all of humanity.
And people are buying into this, big time, including the Alternative Media.
A news report published today explains how Big Tech executives are now calling for an “International Regulatory body for AI.”
OpenAI leaders propose international regulatory body for AI
AI is developing rapidly enough and the dangers it may pose are clear enough that OpenAI’s leadership believes that the world needs an international regulatory body akin to that governing nuclear power — and fast. But not too fast.
In a post to the company’s blog, OpenAI founder Sam Altman, President Greg Brockman, and Chief Scientist Ilya Sutskever explain that the pace of innovation in artificial intelligence is so fast that we can’t expect existing authorities to adequately rein in the technology.
While there’s a certain quality of patting themselves on the back here, it’s clear to any impartial observer that the tech, most visibly in OpenAI’s explosively popular ChatGPT conversational agent, represents a unique threat as well as an invaluable asset.
The post, typically rather light on details and commitments, nevertheless admits that AI isn’t going to manage itself:
We need some degree of coordination among the leading development efforts to ensure that the development of superintelligence occurs in a manner that allows us to both maintain safety and help smooth integration of these systems with society.
We are likely to eventually need something like an [International Atomic Energy Agency] for superintelligence efforts; any effort above a certain capability (or resources like compute) threshold will need to be subject to an international authority that can inspect systems, require audits, test for compliance with safety standards, place restrictions on degrees of deployment and levels of security, etc.
Do you see what they are doing here in creating an atmosphere of fear? The threat from AI is just as serious as the threat of a nuclear holocaust, according to them.
This is what is going to be used to convince people to trust Big Tech and hand over the biodata so that they can “prove” they are human.
And they learned their lesson from COVID, where there was a strong resistance in the Alternative Media to the Big Pharma funded corporate media propaganda on COVID and their “vaccines,” so the plan this time seems to be to use Chat AI to consolidate all of the information available on the Internet into these Chat AI programs, so that they can more effectively control the flow of information this time.
So expect some kind of announcement soon regarding a “new” government oversight organization to “regulate” AI, and you can be sure that will consist of Big Tech and Big Finance industry insiders from the private sector.
I have already referenced the FIDO Alliance above that is leading the way to push for biometrics in a new financial system. The other organization to watch is the OpenID Foundation, which has been around since 2007.
The OpenID Foundation (OIDF) promotes, protects and nurtures the OpenID community and technologies.
The OpenID Foundation is a non-profit international standardization organization of individuals and companies committed to enabling, promoting and protecting OpenID technologies.
Formed in June 2007, the Foundation serves as a public trust organization representing the open community of developers, vendors, and users. OIDF assists the community by providing needed infrastructure and help in promoting and supporting expanded adoption of OpenID.
This entails managing intellectual property and brand marks as well as fostering viral growth and global participation in the proliferation of OpenID. (Source.)
The leadership of OpenID has the usual list of Fintech companies involved, including Verizon, Cisco, Microsoft, Capital One, Apple, and many others.
As I published at the first of year here in 2023, the prediction of a New One World Order has been evident since the founding of the United States, with the Great Seal which is also on our currency, stating a “New World Order” with the Satanic all-seeing eye along with other Freemason symbolism. See:
Year 2023: Will America Fulfill Its Destiny? Jesus Christ is the Only “Transhuman” the World Has Ever Seen or Will Ever See
As our economy and banks sit today on the brink of collapse, it seems we are getting closer to the implementation of this new single world order financial system.
He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
(Note: I, and many others, do not think that “right hand” and “forehead” here are literal.)
