A Comprehensive Guide: How to get your Digital National ID


As majority of the transactions go online, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), in collaborative effort with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) previously introduced the Digital National ID, a smart and convenient move to revolutionize the way we conduct things in the government.

The Digital National ID comes along with authentication platforms such as National ID eVerify and National ID Check where more than 87 million Filipinos who have registered to the National ID are now able to access their Digital National ID online and get verified through these stronger authentication platforms.

The Digital National ID is simply the official digital version of the National ID. Those who want to obtain their Digital National ID may easily access it through their computers or smartphones as long as they have a reliable internet connection.

Similar to other formats such as the National ID and printed ePhilID, the Digital National ID serves as a valid proof of identification and age which can be used in any government or private transactions.

DICT reiterated that the Digital National ID is a modern identification system that will “streamline transactions, improve service delivery, and ultimately make doing business easier for everyone.”
