Digital identity for public and private services is evolving. The success of e-Government services and the delivery of socio-economic benefits demand a secure, scalable digital identity solution which will enable trusted online interaction, foster innovation in digital services and strengthen cybersecurity.
Mobile Connect offers a solution by providing citizens with a secure and convenient way to prove who they are, with the device that’s always with them; their mobile phone. Mobile Connect can support e-government digital identity authentication for citizens and employees giving access to public services, smart cities, healthcare, education, cross border public services and voting. Through the in-built privacy protection offered, it can simplify anonymous registration where citizen entitlement doesn’t need to be checked, and reduce the risk of data breaches as well as cut governments’ costs to serve. By delivering these benefits to citizens and employees, Mobile Connect can strengthen trust and uptake of e-Government services.
