Live in Malaysia? Stickers plastered on your car are about to ruin your privacy.

If you're a Malaysian citizen who drives - your privacy when on the roads is about to be worsened. 

The Malaysian Government have just announced plans to introduce a scheme which sees all road vehicles plastered with a special RFID tax sticker. 

While these stickers have the supposed intention of deterring car thieves, monitoring road jams, and controlling road networks - we at Wallet Wall don't see it as much. 

With an untested encryption system, we believe that citizens of Malaysia are far worse - as privacy concerns mount. This would equate to anyone with an RFID reader monitoring who is driving what vehicle - and from afar. 

Now this system isn't yet to take full effect until 2018 - but the Government have plans to push out a pilot test program, which starts as early as next month. Happy days! 

Oh, and if you're planning to rip the sticker off, don't. They're programmed to transmit a warning if it's tampered with, and shatter.
