... "European Commission announced that it is necessary to change some parts of their digital ID scheme for online transactions across Europe. A representative Andrea Servida recently stated that the necessity comes after they noticed some level of uncertainty in a process of creating a digital identity. This can be viewed as the European Commission’s official stance.

According to Servida, the main problem is that the users don’t know what happens with their personal data in the reality. When any platform or app asks them to create a new digital identity, a question appears: what are you doing with my private information?"
