How Could Digital ID Cards Avoid Identity Theft?
ID card has become an indispensable part of our lives. We require it to verify who we’re if we require go somewhere or enjoy legal citizen service. However, identity theft can be seen every year, which arouse countries’ attention and hasten them to take action.
France Rollout New Digital ID Cards
Recently, France government rollout new digital identity cards equipped with unique QR codes and fingerprints in a bid to prevent identity theft and protect citizens’ identity. The new cards will be valid for 10 years, shorter than the current 15 years. The département of Oise in Northern Paris will be the first to rollout the new cards, and the other parts of the country will then progressively introduce, French media reported.
How do the new cards work and avoid identity theft?
The new digital ID cards look similar to the old ones, but they are smaller and equipped with an electronic chip and a QR code. The new cards will be possible to travel within the European Union with the new cards but not to the UK from October 2021.
The electronic chip will contain all the personal information (name, date of birth, nationality, etc.) indicated on the physical card, including a picture, and two fingerprints (except for children under 12 years old). The QR code is the CEV or visible electronic collection number that used as an electronic signature to mark authenticity.
In this way, the new cards have capable of fighting identity theft, as the electronic chip will act as an all-access key and would be easier to detect cases of fraud.
