As more individuals get vaccinated, companies are identifying a new way to allow consumers to feel safe—hence, the launch of digital health passports. The concept allows those who have been vaccinated to carry the medical documents to prove it seamlessly on their person at all times. The digital health passport would be especially handy for those who are planning to travel, enabling a level of convenience and comfort.
In the United Kingdom, one such product has been launched by British cyber technology company VST Enterprises (VSTE). The cross-border platform is titled the V-Health Passport. The service validates the passenger's identity and authenticates their COVID-19 test result and vaccination details. The digital health passport utilized 'VCode' scanning technology instead of the more common bar codes and QR code technologies which are thought to be less secure.
