Digital identity – Bund-ID leads the way

In May, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported on the current level of use for the Bund-ID. And the numbers are impressive: “A good 2.8 million people are currently registered to use Bund ID for identifying themselves online – in January, there were only about 250,000, according to the Federal Ministry of the Interior.”

The driver “The reason for the rapid increase is the one-time payment to students, with which the federal government is trying to cushion the cost of increased energy prices. To get the 200 euros, students had to unlock a federal ID.”

Benefits must be clear

Why is this important: The benefit must be clear – including the registration process for a Digital Identity. What is the driver for the Digital Identity that health insurers will provide starting next year?
