The European Union will announce a digital wallet that allows citizens from all 27 countries to log into government and utility sites more securely.
The digital wallet will also allow residents to store official documents such as driver’s licenses, passports and personal documents. Europeans love bureaucracy and official documents for everything. This would help citizens organize all of that beloved paperwork.
This would also save utility companies the expense of running their own infrastructure. You know how some utility company logins and online portals are better than others? If these were run by the EU, it should run better, in theory at least.
The EU loves privacy as much as it loves bureaucracy. Officials say that they will disallow marketing from user data or any other commercial activity.
If this works, it could be a model for other nations.
