MONITORING SOCIETY. Mobile Bank ID and Swish were just the beginning. Now, Mastercard and Microsoft are to produce digital identities for everyone. Your identity should be known no matter what you do. The system will also simplify for increased invasion of racial strangers to the West.
Last Month, Mastercard and Microsoft announced in a joint communication that they intend to produce new digital identity documents for all people, who will work in all contexts.
All choices and social actions performed in agreements with authorities and companies must be linked through this new digital identity document that will always prove your identity and your actions.
The new identity document should “simplify” our interactions, no matter what we do. It should also be used to verify Facebook users and the like.
“To vote, drive, search for jobs, rent a home, get married and board an aircraft: All such acts mean you have to prove your identity. Together with Microsoft, we work to create a universally valid digital identity document, ”writes Mastercard in his communication.
Voting, driving, applying for a job, renting a home, getting married and boarding a plane: what do these all have in common? You need to prove your identity. In partnership with @Microsoft, we are working to create universally-recognized digital identity. https://t.co/He5syqa5g7

Mastercard explains the companies’ new projects as follows:
Verifying their identity on the Internet is still dependent on physical or digital evidence handled by a central player, whether it be a passport number, accounting address, driver’s license, user identities or other things.
This dependency puts a heavy burden on individuals who must be able to remember hundreds of passwords for different identities, and they must perform increasingly complex actions to prove their identity and manage their data.
Mastercard and Microsoft aim to provide people with a safe and fast way to verify their identity to anyone, whenever they want.
The answer to these challenges is a service that lets users enter, control and share their identity data in their own ways – on devices they use every day. This is Mastercard’s intention, in close collaboration with players such as Microsoft.
– Today’s digital identity landscape is a jungle, inconsistent; and what works in one country often does not work in another. We have the opportunity to establish a system that puts people first and gives them control over their identity data and where they are used, ”says Ajay Bhalla , head of cyber and information solutions at Mastercard.
“By working with Microsoft, we are one step closer to the realization of a globally interoperable digital identity service,” continues Bhalla.
The new digital identities will create opportunities for new and improved user experiences for people who interact with businesses, service entities and virtual networks, such as:
Financial Services : Enhance and speed up identification processes to open new bank accounts, create loans, or make payments.
Kommers : Enable a more individualized and effective shopping experience both on the Internet and in business, regardless of the form of payment, portable device or service provider.
Contact with authorities : Simplification of communication with authorities and services, such as declaring income, ordering pass documents, voting or ensuring that your contributions are paid.
Digital Services : Streamlined and simpler ways to use email, social media, music and movie streaming services and car pools.
A new way of managing one of the cornerstones of life
– The digital identity is a cornerstone of how people live, work and entertain themselves every day, says Joy Chik , Microsoft’s vice president of identities.
– We believe that individuals should have control over their digital identity and data, and we are enthusiastic about working with Mastercard to give life to new decentralized innovations, says Chik.
This digital solution will also solve many common challenges:
Identity conclusion : Over one billion people, the majority of them women, children and refugees, do not have official identity. A digital identity can improve their access to health, money and social services.
Identity Verification : A single, reusable digital identity can help people interact with a vendor, bank, authority, and impersonal other digital service broker with greater integrity, lower cost, and less friction.
Fraud Prevention : A single digital identity can reduce the number of payment fraud and various forms of identity theft.
Displeased individuals can be immediately blocked all over the world
With integrated systems, it is easy to lock identities for all or selected forms of transactions. An identity that is used for a purpose that displeases some of the more influential operators, can with some keystrokes be prevented from, for example, taking bank loans, opening a bank account, starting a car or flying aircraft. This may apply, for example, to “suspected Muslim terrorists”.
A nationalist who is opposed to the globalized world can with the coming system be prevented from voting in elections so that “undemocratic parties” cannot flare up, and so on.
This is nothing that is written in the communiqué, but it is technically easy to manage the identity in this way. The purpose of the new digital identities is that all people’s identity should be transparent and undoubtedly identifiable. All their doings and songs should always be obvious and easy to trace and “manage”.
Mastercard has previously had global payment solution projects that will facilitate migration across the world. Financial man George Soros , together with Mastercard and the UN, have various migration projects where “refugees” get access to bank accounts and payment solutions in order to more easily infiltrate the West.
At the same time, the UN’s new global migration agreement – which among other things Norway and the Swedish transitional government that governs overtime intends to write on December 10 – aims, among other things, to reduce transaction costs for “refugees” who want to move financial resources from their new contributing industrialized host countries, to the countries from which they have fled.
With Mastercards, Microsoft’s and the UN’s new global ventures, the “friction” will thus decrease between what the racially invasive invaders and the asylum seekers want from the West, and the fulfillment of these desires.
