    We have virtual drivers licenses or IDs?

    Since my iPhone Xs updated last night I have been all through my phone setting up apps I have never really given much thought to before.

    Apple wallet and cash.. for example.

    This got me to thinking, how much longer until we have all digital IDs, drivers licenses etc?

    Almost makes sense, leather wallets could actually become a thing of the past and our phones take their place. Not so far fetched when you consider all of the information on our phones as it is.

    so....last i knew, you can put your license on your phone and it works. I live in Louisiana and could have sworn I had heard of some people doing that. Same with car ins. and all. I could be wrong (i AM married, so most likely lol)

    The chips are actually here and in use. Several businesses have them as a option for employees, the chip auto clocks them in and out and logs them onto company terminals.

    If you have what we call pikepass here in Oklahoma, pre paid tag for turn pike use, that is now also valid in other states on their turnpikes comes in handy in the D/FW area you are tracked.

    I hear what you are saying tho @Migraine

    Yes you can keep a photo of them, BUT my question is how much longer till they are all virtual? So your license would be sent to you via email or app, renewal could possibly be done by app as well.

    Some US states are planning pilots for digital IDs. The problem is federation across multiple jurisdictions, especially when traveling. Realistically countries in Africa are likely going to see it soonest as the leap is easier.

    The real first steps are happening in North America at Universities with student IDs going fully digital.

    The biggest challenge is data and money. Do you think Google and Apple will support it for free? Unlikely... just like Apple Pay they take their share everywhere.

    I scan DLs daily, mainly in tool rental but also when on a register at times and a customer needs to return a item with no receipt, they get store credit and that credit is assigned to their DL, so they have to be present to use it.

    When they scan your drivers license for beer sales, you cant tell me it's all part of Oboma care. 1500 pages and I know it goes to some data base about my alcohol consumption so if I get a liver disease they dont have to cover it..... big brother

    Iowa, Delaware and Oklahoma for drivers licenses. Edit: Louisiana is active for IDs.

    However it’s not going to advance until Android finishes development on the IdentityCredential API which supports the iso protocol for secure drivers licenses (2020 release).

    I do not doubt that it will link back somehow

    I was denied short and long term disability coverage at work a few years back at the yearly renewal, reason was previous years health assessments, back when I participated, I no longer do. Even tho the health assessment states that no information in the assessment will be used against you in any way its only for your benefit to show you what changes you might want to make.

    My results always came back great except for weight and BP.. so I was denied disability coverage due to those two factors..
