Maldives has always been a nation that welcomes and embraces new technology. As the interactions between people, businesses, and the government shift towards digital platforms, the secure interoperability of digital services and personal data in the country has become vital. This increased dependence on digital and online services comes with its own risks, especially with respect to a user’s digital identity. Hence, convenience and ease of use must be balanced with safety and security to ensure trust and confidence in these services.
eFaas is the National Digital Identity service which allows users to establish and verify their identity digitally both in-person and online. This service is developed and maintained by the National Centre for Information Technology.
