Ex-Walmart Employee Says Self Checkout Takes Photos Of You Every Time You Scan Something

Well, it appears that the self checkout cameras at Walmart are far more invasive than the ones placed around the actual store.

A former Walmart employee says that the self checkout machines are gathering a slew of information from customers.

The video comes from creator AshtheTruth who used to work as an ‘Asset Protection Manager’ for the Walmart chain. Throughout the video she shares her theories about how Walmart is collecting personal data.

“So you see those little machines right there? Oh, yeah. So I had made a video about the cameras that they have that can see into your phone. Well, those ones at the register, they’re 10 times worse, my dude,” she says. “So, every time you scan something, it takes pictures of you and let me just tell you every time that you run your card through a Walmart scanner, they have a note of it.”

She claims that they store a photo of your face, the card you use to make the purchase and all data information in relation to time, date, card used and items scanned. All this information is stored in a massive database – a searchable database.

“If you want to protect your information, and your may or may not be doing janky shit, use cash and cover your ID,” she advises. “Those cameras can read into your wallet and they do.”

The video brought in a ton of comments.

One commenter noted, “And that’s why cash is king,” with another echoing, “One of the reasons why ‘they’ want to get rid of the cash system, they want complete control over us.”

Another took the information about ID card reading to mean that RFID-blocking wallets were necessary, though one commenter noted that Walmart sells these types of wallets in their stores.
