Walmart's anti-theft technology creates a new set of problem

. Privacy Concerns: Advanced anti-theft technologies often involve surveillance methods, leading to concerns about the invasion of shoppers' privacy.

False Alarms: The technology may trigger false alarms, resulting in inconvenience for innocent shoppers and potentially damaging the store's reputation.

Discrimination: There is a risk that certain anti-theft technologies may disproportionately affect specific demographic groups, potentially leading to discriminatory practices.

Cost Burden: Implementing and maintaining sophisticated anti-theft technology can be expensive, and these costs may be passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices.

Employee and Shopper Perception: Aggressive anti-theft measures can create an unwelcoming atmosphere, affecting both employee morale and the overall shopping experience.

Technological Glitches: Any technological system can experience glitches or failures, which may result in unintended consequences or an inability to prevent theft effectively.

Limited Effectiveness: Some anti-theft technologies may not be foolproof, allowing determined shoplifters to find ways to circumvent the system.

 Overreliance on Technology: Depending too heavily on technology for theft prevention may lead to a decrease in human vigilance and oversight, potentially allowing theft to go unnoticed.
