LOOK: UAE Launches Face ID for Accessing Government Services

Two months after it was announced by the Ruler of Dubai, the UAE has launched a biometric facial and fingerprint recognition technology as part of its plans to create the first secure digital national identity project for citizens and residents in the country.

According to authorities, the face print technology facilitates the registration process in the digital identification application, UAE Pass, so that customers need not visit government centers for services.

UAE Launches Face ID To Get Government Services

Soon, Get Gov’t Services Using Face ID in the UAE

Earlier, the Ministry of Interior noted that the use of face print technology will be expanded in both government agencies as well as in some private sector institutions.

The UAE government is one of the first governments in the world to adopt this technology. The goal is to make people’s lives easier and provide a quick and efficient way to get digital government services.

With the use of biometric facial recognition in the digital ID application, a verified account can be created in less than five minutes without the need to visit government service centers. Before, the registration process took 20 minutes and registrants had to visit government service centers.

The number of registered digital IDs has so far reached more than 1.38 million, of which 628,000 have verified accounts.
