EU’S NEW ID
The European Union on Thursday unveiled plans for a digital ID wallet that would be available to residents of the 27-member bloc.
The European Commission said the wallet would allow citizens to prove identity and share documents “with the click of a button on their phone.”
Users would be allowed to link their identifications with other personal information, such as diplomas and bank accounts.
Large platforms will be required to accept the digital identity at the request of users. However, citizens will be able to decide whether they use it.
