The inevitable changes in the world caused new discussions of the ethical and legal issues on implanting computer chips in the human body. As it is known that, at the beginning of the technology, body chips were used for health purposes, but it is not just limited to it anymore. This technology will facilitate constant access to information about every citizen when and where it is needed. Then it could be a sort of threat to security and citizenship. Therefore the ethical and legal debates and discourses have focused on medical and scientific responsibilities, anxieties about the questions of privacy and autonomy.
