"We're here to let the industry know that consumers don't want tracking devices in their clothing," RFID privacy expert Katherine Albrecht said. "When they embed [RFID] into clothing, or shoes, or other items people wear or carry, they can also put the readers to pick up those signals into floors, doorways, ceiling tiles, anywhere people go, and use them to track and identify people.""
