In Russia, alcohol can be bought by presenting a smartphone

In Russia, they plan to conduct an experiment with electronic passports in 2020, which are two components: a card with a chip and an application on a mobile device. The application will be developed for iOS, Android and the Russian Aurora OS, Izvestia writes . After downloading, you will need to go through the authentication procedure to synchronize it with the public services portal.

“The experiment is likely to extend to services where there are no legally significant transactions. For example, when buying alcohol or tobacco products, instead of a paper passport, it will be possible to present a mobile application. We will understand the level of attempts to commit fraud using the application, evaluate its crackability, ”said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Maxim Akimov.

In the near future, it is planned to launch various electronic services in Russia, which will allow you to refuse to fill out papers. Among other things – the online design of the Euro protocol using smartphones of road accident participants.
