OREANDA-NEWS Cellular operators have proposed adding the Mobile ID feature to electronic passports. This will allow users to authenticate remotely. But experts fear that so the personal data of Russians will flow abroad.

A representative of MegaFon made a proposal to add Mobile ID to electronic passports at a meeting of the working group on digital public administration of the Digital Economy, which was held on August 22. However, according to the source of the newspaper Kommersant, other operators also participated in the development of the proposal.

The Mobile ID project is being implemented by the entire Big Four. According to a company representative, the technology can be used not only in the electronic passport application, but also in ordinary push-button phones without the Internet. Subscribers are scheduled for 2020.
