The environment of people is becoming more technological. As NFC technology for contactless payment technologies, contactless door opening systems, key-less cars and electronic public transport ticketing system get more prevalent and used, devices supporting these functionalities also get more popular.

Without carrying these devices people risk not being able to make payments, being locked out of buildings and websites, unable to travel or unable to identify themselves. This can have serious implications on safety, security, convenience, stress and time of people.
