One in four would use his mobile phone as an identity card

Would be a representative study of forsaking extrapolated to Germany about 1000 people from 14 years, then in Germany would use his smartphone as a passport nearly one in four Germans, because if he owns a smartphone. More specifically, it can be thought of 24 percent of the respondents held the identity card to whip out the smartphone.


Also interesting is a statement of the survey: The Smartphone as identification can be above average number of men (28 percent), young (41 percent of all aged between 14 and 29 years) and East Germans imagined (31 percent). East Germans? To the east of our country so you are more courageous and goes perhaps a little looser with new technologies in order.

Dealing with authorities and other important business of the new ID card in chip card format remains the main card. On more and more administrative portals citizens can identify with the new ID card and submit applications electronically. However, users need for a card reader for your computer.

To statements such as “By 2015 the smartphone to be used as a card reader for the new ID card” I do not think personally the way currently. One in seven (14 percent) can also imagine to give up his wallet completely and only have to pay with their smartphone. As far as the results in Germany. Our friends in Austria are on, there is already the mobile signature. Using this signature can already draw digital forms.

I for one can say that of course I want a smartphone as an alternative identity card, because if it is assumed that it is really safe. And just as often likely to be the hurdle.
