Israel Unveils Terrifying New Freedom Bracelet To Track Citizens

(TheRedWire.com) – In Israel, contact tracing has leveled up. Ironically, the tracking device is being called a “freedom bracelet.” If people entering the country from abroad agree to wear it, they can avoid a two-week quarantine. The bracelet looks much like a smartwatch, and the company that manufactures the device works with several countries to create tracking and monitoring tools for prisoners.

The bracelets allow government officials to track the movements of those who wear them. Israel maintains that they’re not required. However, it does ensure anyone who comes into the country the freedom to move around. If one chooses not to wear it, they must be locked down for two weeks in a military-administered quarantine hotel.

Still, there are questions about the bracelet in the wake of a recent court ruling. A judge ruled that Israel’s spy agency couldn’t use contact tracing surveillance. He said it was draconian and a threat to democracy.
