But many people cannot get a credit card, so they would not be able to
be verified.
e.g. under age 18 or 21, insufficient income, poor credit history, etc.

Also, many people want or need to be anonymous for their own
protection and to avoid all the intrusive tracking going on.
Especially under authoritarian governments.
