The federal government is in the process of setting up a system whereby people can apply for a "digital identity" in order to access government services online. Assistant Digital Transformation Minister Angus Taylor will on 17 October release details of how people can apply for a digital ID under its "GovPass" program. He will stress that privacy safeguards have been built into the program, and that getting a digital ID is purely voluntary.
