What are Microdots?

Microdots or DataDots date back to the 1800’s where they were first used during the Franco-Prussian War as a message system transported by carrier pigeons. They were later used in World War I and II as a means of passing messages through insecure postal channels.

DataDot have pioneered microdot technology in South Africa since 2001. Today they are being used extensively to protect vehicles and assets.
