• Activist Post

"After entering the application environment, the citizen can with a few clicks create and save the digital copy of his ID and/or driving licence," explains the Greek Ministry of Digital Governance.

"First, he chooses which document he wants to issue, and then he receives a one-time password via SMS, which he enters into the application. Immediately after, the document is created and saved in the application and in the wallet of the mobile phone."

According to the Ministry, the authenticity of digital copies of people's IDs is then verified using QR codes, which officials can scan at various offices and municipal buildings, as well as at the "entrance[s] to concerts, planes, etc."
