Facebook joins ID2020 Alliance to develop tighter security standards


Tech giant Facebook has joined the ID2020 Alliance, a global public-private partnership committed to shape the future of digital ID and ensure technologies are designed and implemented in ways that are privacy-protecting, user-controlled, equitable, and interoperable.

“ID2020 is an open and transparent alliance—a “coalition of the willing,” explains ID2020 executive director Dakota Gruener. “We welcome partners that commit in earnest to upholding the values and principles outlined in the ID2020 Manifesto and share our mission to improve lives through ‘good’ digital ID.”

Facebook has acquired Instagram, WhatsApp, and its Messenger tool, among others, are used by billions of people worldwide. Facebook is joining the ID2020 Technical Advisory Committee to learn and build on standards for digital ID that are secure and privacy-centric.

Founded in 2016, ID2020 develops principles and standards, certifies solutions, and advocates for the ethical development and implementation of digital ID technologies. Alliance partners share a commitment to a future in which all of the world’s nearly eight billion people can exercise their basic human rights and reap the benefits of economic empowerment.

In February, ID2020 launched its largest project to date, the Good Health Pass Collaborative. Putting principles into practice, the Collaborative has brought together more than 125 global companies and organisations from across the health, travel, and technology sectors to develop open standards for digital health passes aimed at restoring international travel and restarting the global economy. This work culminated with the 12 August release of the Good Health Pass Interoperability Blueprint.

Founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook gives people the power to “build community and bring the world closer together.”
