Argentina Opens Investigation into Sam Altman’s Worldcoin

The Argentine Agency for Access to Public Information (AAIP) has launch a probe into Worldcoin. The agency is trying to ascertain the legality of Worldcoin’s data collection practices within Argentina.

The AAIP intends to torchlight the security protocols in place to safeguard the privacy of Worldcoin users in Argentina.

The agency has a problem with Worldcoin’s “procedure of scanning the faces and irises of numerous individuals in exchange for financial compensation at different locations in Buenos Aires City and the provinces of Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mendoza, and Río Negro.”

The AAIP requires Worldcoin to register with the AAIP, provide information about its data processing policy, and indicate the purpose for collecting sensitive data and the retention period for such data.

Worldcoin also has to provide the AAIP details of the security and confidentiality measures applied to safeguard personal information.

Worldcoin had previously maintained that it “ complies with all laws and regulations governing the processing of personal data in the markets where Worldcoin is available.”

Last week, Kenya’s Ministry of the Interior suspended the operations of Worldcoin, and later, the Kenyan police raided the Nairobi warehouse of Worldcoin on Saturday, confiscating documents and machines.
