Mobile ID Top Stories: Digital Access, Fingerprints, and ID4Africa

This Week's Top Mobile ID Stories

This week’s roundup of Mobile ID World’s top stories offers another diverse lineup, but a couple of key themes can be discerned.

One is digital access. Readers were interested in the news that Yoti had teamed up with age verification specialist AgeID to regulate access to ‘adult websites’ in the UK, and were also keen to learn about Yubico’s new security key solution for controlling access to iOS and Android mobile devices:

Another (perhaps more tangible) theme in this week’s roundup is fingerprint scanning. Precise Biometrics reaffirmed its excitement about in-display fingerprint scanning in an update from its new Shanghai office, while NEXT Biometrics delved into the advantages of large-area fingerprint sensors in a new White Paper:

The fifth article in this week’s roundup, meanwhile, is a world unto itself, containing links to our many show floor interviews from last week’s ID4Africa event in Johannesburg. A lot of big names were in attendance, and it’s no wonder that readers were keen to listen to what they had to say:
