    €110.00
    +vat
    Compared to traditional identity, digital identity can contain other types of information other than basic personal details, such as information related to the online interactions of the business or individual. Smartphones, due to the technology they contain and the fact that they have become ubiquitous in everyday life, can play a fundamental role in the area of digital identity: many people are rarely without their smartphone at hand, making it a more constant companion than their wallet. These technological characteristics and the particular way in which they are used make smartphones a very useful and adaptable device for identity management, for both physical and digital identities.
