Virtual Identification

Governments and organizations are experimenting with forms of digital ID

Implications - Going beyond biometric integration into tangible identification systems, governments and other organizations are increasingly offering options for exclusively virtual forms of identification. As a complement to existing ID cards, users are now able to choose between presenting a physical card and a digital copy. This shift speaks to consumer preference for the balance between the continued blurring of our physical and virtual selves and our desire for convenience and security in every day life.
