Regions and cities welcome the European Digital Identity Wallet but point out the need for strong safeguards

The European Committee of the Regions has backed the idea of a European Digital Identity Wallet, which should enable citizens to prove their identity all across the European Union allowing them access both commercial and public services online. Members adopted today at the plenary session an opinion drafted by Mark Weinmeister (DE/EPP), Secretary of State for European Affairs of the Land of Hesse, in which they suggest that this could become a concrete element of European identity that every EU citizen is aware of. However, the opinion points out that the use of digital identity should remain voluntary and underlines it needs to be sufficiently reinforced against the risk of cyberattacks.
