Worldcoin Faces Scrutiny Over Data Collection

While Worldcoin aims to create a global digital passport and distribute its native cryptocurrency, WLD, to people worldwide, it is currently facing scrutiny over its data collection practices in various countries.

Investigations in Argentina

The Argentine Agency for Access to Public Information (AAIP) is investigating Worldcoin’s data collection practices in Argentina. The company is required to provide detailed information about its data processing policy to protect user privacy.

Activities Suspended in Kenya

Worldcoin’s activities are currently suspended in Kenya as the government investigates the legality of its biometrics and data collection methods. Before the suspension, approximately 635,000 Kenyans had downloaded the global app.

Data Protection Examination in France and Germany

Data regulators in France and Germany are collaborating to examine Worldcoin’s data collection techniques and ensure compliance with international data protection standards.

Despite these challenges, Worldcoin continues to expand its global reach and recently achieved a record in Argentina by onboarding 9,500 new users in just one day.
