Facial recognition apps are replacing traditional government IDs

The Government of Jersey recently announced its decision to use the digital identity app Yoti as its official identity provider. The Government’s digital team says that users will no longer need to remember multiple usernames and passwords and ideally, by not having to carry as much documentation with them, will keep official identity papers more secure. Biometric and digital identities are being tested in a number of ways. The Indian government recently introduced digital drivers licenses and an online secure cloud storage system for all official services. And a team of German researchers found a way to use the unique sound of an individual’s skull to securely identify owners of smart wearables.
