Will we ever have technology that completely prevents identity theft?

When credit card companies first rolled out chip cards, my coworker, who went to school for Information Technology, told me they will eventually figure out how to crack the chips. And today, stores sell RFID wallets, which are supposed to block thieves from scanning your card while it’s inside your pocket! But how long before they find their way around that?

    Nope because if there is a will then there is a way... One big chess game between the power of the human minds

    Possibly and probably not. Bad guys are clever, hard to take down, and a hell of a lot harder to keep down after all.

    Any technology that can be used to safeguard information can be used to steal it. It's kind of like an arms race between armor and armor piercing weapons.

    It's always a cat and mouse game - one side increases security, the other finds loopholes around it. Where there's a will there's a way. Nothing is 100% secure.
