This post highlights the two questions I asked during the event of Better Identity Coalition Day on the 25th of January, 2023.
Short Preamble to the Event
The Better Identity Coalition is dedicated to working closely with policymakers to advance digital security, privacy protections, and user-friendliness for all individuals. The coalition is made up of some of the most successful companies worldwide, and its purpose is to encourage education and collaboration on securing identities online.
They are exploring innovative solutions to allow people in the United States to take control of their identities and operate their businesses online in a risk-free and protected environment.
During the Event, I Posed Two Questions
On January 25, I went to the Better Identity Coalition Day, and while there, I asked two questions.
I questioned whether or not they are aware that the federal government of the United States is going to issue secure digital IDs to a certain demographic. For instance, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is going to start issuing digital green cards soon, utilizing the format of verifiable credentials.

I also questioned a recent conspiracy theory involving Phyto that suggests Apple, Google, and Microsoft are involved in a scheme to grant the NSA access to cloud data. While I was not asking for a response to this theory, I wanted to bring attention to the issue of conspiracy theories within the Meta industry. As a leader, I was curious to know what steps they and other leaders in the room were taking to collectively address this problem.
