Microsoft and Mastercard are teaming up to create a universal digital identity that the want everyone to use.
Today’s digital identity landscape is patchy, inconsistent and what works in one country often won’t work in another. We have an opportunity to establish a system that puts people first, giving them control of their identity data and where it is used. Working with Microsoft brings us one step closer to making a globally interoperable digital identity service a reality, and we look forward to sharing more very soon.
This is the same Microsoft that recently pledged to share all of its technology with the United States military. A universal digital identity is an advertiser’s wet dream. It also creates a single point of failure for data breaches and hackers, like a Social Security Number.
