The UAE announces the launch of a new security feature for the Emirates ID card

Ahmed Moawad - | UAE

The UAE government has announced a new security feature in the Emirates ID card, and it has already been implemented when using computers to log in to the website using the Emirates pass card.

This new feature is represented by the new web authentication icon, which appears to you when you regularly use the UAE card to log in to different websites on the Internet.

The new safety feature was announced last month, and recently came into effect.

The new security feature in the Emirates ID card

As for the mechanism of the web authentication code in the Emirates ID card, it occurs when you log in to the bank’s online system, where you are presented with the option to log in to the account using the Emirates pass card.

If you want to proceed, you will need to click on the "Sign in with UAE Pass" button and then provide your UAE ID, email ID, or phone number.

You will receive the following notice on the next page: "Open your UAE Pass app, select the number shown, and confirm login." The number will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. Let us assume that the website displays the number 54 to you.

Make sure that the notice that says "Authentication Required" appears on your phone. This notification should have been displayed by the UAE Pass app.

In this section, you will be able to view three distinct number alternatives. Within the context of the above illustration, you will be able to view the number 54 on your mobile device, in addition to two additional choices. If you have the proper number, then click the "Confirm" button.

After that, the application will look at your face using facial recognition technology in order to verify your identity.

After these first security checks have been finished, you will be allowed to access the website and log in.

Have there been any changes made to the application procedure as well?

You will not experience any changes to the procedure if you utilize UAE Pass to log in to an application. In the event that you choose the 'Log in with UAE Pass' option, the UAE Pass application will be shown on your screen immediately. This application will make use of the face recognition option in order to facilitate a smooth login process.

The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) asserts that the Web Authentication Token feature is completely in the control of the user through a user-centric approach that places an emphasis on accuracy and security at each and every stage from the beginning to the end.
