Australia: NSW Digital ID

Latest developments

The NSW Government commenced its ‘NSW Digital ID’ project which will allow customers in NSW to prove their identity without using physical identity documents.

The project differs from the Federal Government’s already existing ‘myGovID’ by allowing users to prove their identity with not only government organisations, but also with businesses without having to disclose additional personal information (such as a driver’s licence).

Next steps

The NSW Government has completed several successful pilots and received positive feedback but a date for the complete roll out of the NSW Digital ID has not yet been indicated. The NSW Government is also currently working with the Federal Government to enable the use of NSW Digital ID outside of NSW, by adopting a national Digital Identity ecosystem.
