The society I rent a flat in has introduced this system of letting residents/guests/rental vehicles/food orders in or out through an app verification. Besides the sheer holier-than-thou nonsense that this gated community system is, the people living here don't realise they're volunteering their data, including name, number, time-tracked movements, car details to an unverified third party that does nothing guarantee that your data won't be misused. The lack of is appalling!
