We can board planes, watch TV and buy things with our phones but we still have to carry paper ID documents simply to prove who we are. It doesn’t make sense that we live in a society driven by digital connections but we prove our identity using paper and card. We risk losing a valuable ID document on a night out. Buying a bottle of wine at a supermarket self-checkout involves waiting for a checkout assistant to intervene and verify we’re over 18. It’s not right that we can’t be 100% confident in the identities of people we meet online. Innocent, genuine people are being stung by scams which cost them time, money and personal inconvenience.
