Digital integrated circuits must be accepted for identity verification at all government agencies


“We are working on changing the legislation to formalize the use of Digital IC for these exceptions,” SNDGO and GovTech said.

The digital integrated circuit feature, which was introduced in May of last year, is now prominently displayed on the app’s home page for easy access.

Security measures are in place to protect the identity of the user, as the digital integrated circuit serves as an official identification document, added SNDGO and GovTech.

The digital integrated circuit features the latest user’s photograph provided to the government and is accompanied by an animated, holographic lion’s crest to prevent image tampering and screen spoofing.

Additionally, users’ NRIC or FIN numbers are masked by default to protect their privacy during transactions, and user authentication is required to view all digital IC details.
