A UAE authority has issued an alert over claims about alleged fraud using the digital identity solution UAE Pass.
The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) has assured residents that the UAE Pass is highly secure. The authority was responding to social media posts about the alleged fraud.
“TDRA stresses the importance of exercising caution when receiving any notifications or login requests. It is essential to thoroughly verify these requests before clicking any buttons to avoid potential fraud attempts by individuals seeking unauthorised access to your accounts,” the authority posted on microblogging platform X, formerly called Twitter.
According to the UAE government website, UAE Pass app is the first national digital identity and signature solution that enables users to identify themselves to service providers through a smartphone-based authentication.
The highly secure app grants a digital identity to users and eliminates the need to create or remember multiple usernames and passwords for different apps.
