How many street passes do you get in an average week?
@techhits: That's what I find interesting, isn't it all anonymous? The most specific information in there is the country/state where they live. How do you track/contact a streetpass?
The only information traded is your Mii, your Mii's name/region, and the last game/3DS app you used. It does not track user ages or feature any sort of GPS feature. The chances that someone would use StreetPass as a predatory tool are incredibly, incredibly remote.
right, but that's not really issue. It's that parents think it could / might / don't know what street passing is.
On a side note lots of people turn their 3ds off when not using it so it could have been that.
@rebel_scum: A street pass is when you physically walk near someone that has a 3ds you get a street pass tag. The street pass tag gives you that persons mii and allows you to use that character in the mii plaza games, but only once.
Also many games support street passing. like in animal crossing if you street pass with someone who has played animal crossing you can walk through their house and order furniture that you like for a price.
it's really something that you need to experience to "get" but it's really neat, that along with pedometer have really made me carry the thing around.
Zero. I've never even had a single proper street pass. The only ones I've had were around E3 where they threw a bunch of Nintendo dudes in there.
Pretty much, either nobody around here owns a 3DS, or they potentially don't have internet on them.
