Why are IDs going digital?

Convenience
Digital IDs are stored on a mobile device, which means there are less cards to carry.

Digital IDs are harder to lose or misplace, they're also easier to re-issue and manage.

Digital business or access cards are contactless, for staying safe during COVID.

Security
Physical cards will always have high risk of loss and theft.

Physical cards are easier to replicate, increasing security risks such as impersonation and fraud.

Digital IDs are issued to mobile phones which can be tracked and turned off remotely if stolen.
Cost
Switching from physical cards to a digital solution gives cost savings of up to 75%

Digital IDs save extra costs spent on packaging, shipping, design and card updates.

Digital solutions come with predictable recurring monthly costs
