Forgot your wallet or purse? No problem. You now have a legal, state issued ID on your phone or mobile device….and, we know you did not forget your phone!
Mobile ID is an app allowing Mississippi residents to maintain a valid, state-issued ID on their device. Mobile ID reports that it is a “highly secure, digitized version of your driver license or state-issued ID, carried in an app on your smartphone”
Mobile ID is endorsed by the Department of Public Safety and the MS Drivers Service Bureau. “Mississippi Mobile ID keeps user data secure and ensures privacy of personal information by only storing information with the state system of record and on the user’s device.”
Mobile ID offers a contactless method for verifying identity. “Mobile ID allows the DPS to push updates to information such as an address change or status update, so verifiers can be confident the identity they are accepting is authentic and up-to-date.”
This appears to be safe, easy and legitimate. Now you can have your ID on you whether you have your wallet or not.
