GPS Microchip For Humans

Microchip Implants In Humans – Facts About GPS Tracking Chips

One of the questions many concerned parents often find themselves asking is can you put a tracking chip in your child? Naturally, it makes complete sense for parents to call upon the latest technological tools to boost child safety, but sometimes the line between science fiction and real-life gets a little murky. This leaves consumers searching online to find out what is truth vs fiction, and this is particularly the case when it comes to parents researching if there are microchip tracking devices for humans that can be placed under the skin of a child. But let’s address this important topic and provide parents with the facts they should know about GPS tracking systems, and the conversation surrounding a GPS microchip for humans.

Is There a GPS Chip For Humans?

GPS Under Skin

The first thing consumers should know is that when it comes to the size of a GPS personal tracking system that the number one factor that determines size is battery life. The reason is that although many of the components that make up a GPS tracker have become smaller and more efficient, the evolution of the modern battery has not progressed in the same fashion. Currently, the smaller the GPS tracking device is the shorter the battery life of that tracking system. So how long does a GPS tracker battery last? The answer is on average around 20-30 hours of movement time with a micro tracking system that is about 3 inches in size. Therefore, a GPS microchip for humans placed under the skin would have one very crucial shortcoming: the ability to be powered long-term.

So is there a GPS chip for humans that can be placed under the skin that can transmit the location of a child in real time? The answer is no.

How Do I Keep My Child Safe From Strangers – Child Safety Tips

Can you put a GPS chip in your child?The answer is no. But that does not mean there is valuable information parents should know when it comes to keeping children safe. Here are the top 5 things parents can do to keep a child safe from strangers:

  1. Teach children to say no, trust their instincts, and be firm with strangers/predators who might try and coerce a child who might be reluctant to argue with an adult.
  2. Understanding personal space, and how no adult (even family members) should breach that space unless a parent is around.
  3. Create a list of designated safe adults, and therefore if any adult stranger asks them to come with them or get in their car who is not a “safe adult” they should scream for help.
  4. Teach kids to never get in a car with a stranger regardless of the circumstances.
  5. Have children memorize a parent’s cell phone number so they can call Mom or Dad if they are ever lost or separated from their parents.

Can You Implant A GPS In Your Child

Many times inquisitive GPS tracking customers call into Tracking System Direct facilities and ask some unique questions. Most questions are fairly standard such as:

  • How long will the battery life last on a GPS tracker?
  • Will the tracking system work anywhere in the world?
  • Can I track the micro GPS tracker using my iPhone or Android?

However, occasionally some GPS tracking customers will ask some fairly random and strange questions. Tracking System Direct will always do its very best to answer any vehicle tracking or personal or child tracking-relatedquestions to the best of our ability. If we do not have the answer on hand we have multiple portals and avenues where to access the most current and factual GPS tracking information. No question will ever go left unanswered by any Tracking System Direct staff member.

One question that Tracking System Direct has received a few times over the past 6 months is whether or not a GPS tracking microchip could be implanted under someone’s skin, allowing the government, employer, or someone else the ability to monitor movements 24/7. Basically, “Can you put a tracking chip in a person?“. Tracking System Direct has done extensive research on the topic of personal GPS monitoring chip implantation, and although the concept and application could be plausible in the future (10-15 years?) if GPS monitoring technology continues to improve and advance, at this point in time the application of impacting a GPS tracker under the skin is science fiction.

There are many hurdles present with the application of implanting a GPS tracking microchip under a person’s skin, but the most important one is battery life. If a GPS tracking microchip was implanted under the skin it would need to record all applicable GPS tracking information such as speed, time, direction, orientation, and more, and then need to transmit that tracking system data. A battery on an implantable micro GPS chip would be so small that it would probably only be functional for 15 minutes or not at all, rendering it essentially useless. Currently, most vehicle tracking GPS systems are hardwired to the 12-volt system of a motor vehicle or are accompanied by motion sensors to self-activate when movement is sensed. And RFID chips are not accurate or consistent with location updates. Since humans are extremely mobile creatures, a motion sensor would never provide a viable solution. The only real solution would be the creation of a super small and super powerful battery, but the creation of such a battery would probably assist a variety of the world’s needs, not just GPS tracking microchips.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are There Currently Any GPS Tracking Chips That Can Be Implanted In Humans?

No, there are no GPS tracking chips that can be implanted in humans at the moment. Although there are some experimental implantable devices that can track medical data, these devices do not use GPS technology to track the location of the device or the person.

What Are The Risks Associated With Implantable Chip Devices?

Since there are no implantable GPS chips, there are no risks associated with them. However, in general, implantable devices can pose certain health risks such as infection or adverse reactions to the device materials. Additionally, implantable devices raise concerns about privacy and security, as any data transmitted by the device could potentially be intercepted or hacked.

What Are Some Potential Uses For Human GPS Trackers?

As there are no implantable GPS chips, there are no potential uses for them. However, some researchers have explored the idea of using implantable devices to track medical data and monitor health conditions. For example, scientists like Dina Katabi at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are researching the potential applications of implantable devices in healthcare, such as devices that can monitor heart rate or blood sugar levels.

Have Any Countries Or Companies Attempted To Implant GPS Tracking Chips In People?

To the best of our knowledge, no countries or companies have attempted to implant GPS tracking chips in humans. While there have been rumors and conspiracy theories about governments or corporations secretly implanting people with tracking devices, there is no evidence to support these claims.

Are There Any Benefits To GPS Chips Inside Your Body?

As there are no implantable GPS chips, there are no benefits to them. However, some researchers have suggested that implantable devices could potentially improve medical care and help individuals monitor their health. In fact, some businesses have explored the use of implantable devices as a form of identification, such as implantable NFC chips that could be used as a secure business card or to unlock doors. However, any implantable device raises concerns about privacy, security, human freedom, and autonomy.


If GPS tracking microchips were available, would you use one on your dog, child, or significant other?

If a GPS implant for humans existed, would it be okay for employers to use them to monitor employees?
