    ???

    Only thing they ever wanted from me was a copy of my passport or driver licence.

    That doesn´t hold that much personal data, you claim they want to know.
    I worked with government on quite a few projects mainly the attorney general software systems and that scan bar on back of your drivers license and that scan bar on your passport hold way more info then you know. even a scan of the front of my state drivers license can revealed a lot of info not shown on the print of the license, there is scanable info all over the front of a driver license where I live.

    That will not help if hacker successful sent you a unnoticed trojan, which captures and reports your login and password to the hacker.

    Thats why I want to have 2FA security!
    I'll be ok.

    Here is the standard of it:
    https://www.aamva.org/dl-id-card-design-standard/

    Most of it appears to be things like address and physical description, according to standards. In EU, "Race/ethnicity" is considered one of the sensitive information. (I guess the US definition is more or less the color on the photograph.) If your drivers license issuer has put more info on it, I would suggest complaining to your local politician about it. Having "race" or "ethniticy" in barcode, or the text "sexual predator" [Florida] on the front *can* be sensititive in some juristictions. And while Veteran probably is a good status thing in USA, I guess in countries like Sweden it can be sensitive if it shows that you are likely to be in a military reserve (´hemvärnet´).

    The 1D bar code seems to contain either some reference to social security number, or license or ID number, date of birth, expiration and a two-digit manufacturing number.

    I guess if you really want you could block out the barcode(s) and see if MA still accepts it.

    In Sweden on back of driving licenses there is a barcode that contains the social security number. One example when it's used is when you clam a snailmail package. It's used as a lazy way for computer systems to note "I've seen your ID".

    Modern ID cards either has a visible chip (eg gold plated) or an RFID Circuit. The chip can contain a digital ID (used to, for instance, "sign" your tax form), and the RFID is on passports and "national ID cards" (instead of passports when travelling within EU); it contains biometric data. Kind of sensitive, but logically doesn't come on a photo copy.

    Doesn't some services in USA make a photocopy of the drivers license, like hotels?

    Well, if I scan my passport and sent the copy as a .jpg file, who on earth can read out the chips from that ?
