Only 5 percent of Germans use electronic ID card online

Monday 8 June 2015 | 10:33 CET | News
Merely 5 percent of Germans use the 'eID' function of their electronic ID card to identify themselves on the internet, according to a GfK survey on behalf of Welt am Sonntag among 1,983 people. The Federal Ministry of the Interior stated that while 35 million Germans own this document with a built-in chip, only approximately every third holder has activated the online function, and two out of three members of the public forgo the possibility to use their ID card on the internet.
