There’s always a way around it.
Take the * thing home and zap it in the microwave. Then wear it as they tell you. They won’t be tracking anything once it’s been zapped in the microwave.
I don’t know about that. When they first put magnetic strips in driver’s licenses, I heard that putting the license near a magnet would would make them where they could not be read. I took mine out and for a whole weekend placed a very strong magnet on top of them. It did not work. The best thing to do is resist.
