European Union Reaches Provisional Agreement on European Digital Identity

The Council of the European Union and the European Parliament today reached a provisional agreement on a new framework for a European digital identity (eID). This landmark agreement marks a significant step forward in the EU's efforts to create a secure and trustworthy digital identity for all Europeans.


The new eID framework will enable EU citizens and businesses to use their national digital identities to access a wide range of online services, both within their own country and across EU borders. This will simplify and streamline interactions with governments, businesses, and other organizations, and will make it easier for Europeans to participate in the digital economy.


The eID framework will also provide strong privacy protections for users. Users will have control over their personal data and will be able to choose what information to share and with whom. The framework also includes robust security measures to protect against fraud and cyberattacks.


The provisional agreement reached today still needs to be formally adopted by the European Parliament and the Council before it can enter into force. However, this is a major milestone in the development of a more digital and integrated Europe.
