Digital Identity Programme

Enabling digital identity through the power of mobile

Our mission is to leverage mobile technology as an enabler of digital identity and associated services which provide social and commercial value in developing markets.

Proof of identity is a prerequisite to socio-economic development and essential to accessing basic services. Mobile technology is uniquely positioned to enable accessible and inclusive digital identity. The GSMA Digital Identity programme is playing a key role in advocating and raising awareness of the opportunity of mobile-enabled digital identity and life-enhancing services. Our programme works with mobile operators, governments and the development community to demonstrate the opportunities, address the barriers and highlight the value of mobile as an enabler of digital identification. Using mobile as a unique and robust digital identity for the underserved can lead to greater social, political and economic inclusion.

 

 

This initiative is currently funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and supported by the GSMA and its members.
