MyDigital ID: Public onboarding to start in May, delayed from March

KUALA LUMPUR: Registration for the national digital identification system, both online and at MyDigital ID kiosks nationwide, has been postponed to May for the public.

Acting chief executive officer of My Digital ID Sdn Bhd, Mohd Mirza Mohamed Noor, said that though the system was ready, the rollout for the public, initially set for March, was delayed to allow for integration with various websites and mobile applications.

Currently, MyDigital ID logins have been integrated with services like MySejahtera, the MyGov Portal, and HRMIS (the government human resources portal). Integration with Padu is targeted for this month, and with MyJPJ at a later date.

Financial institutions – banks, insurance companies, and ewallet providers – will be able to start integrating MyDigital ID in May as a solution for eKYC (electronic know your customer) and transaction authorisation.

Mohd Mirza said that the development of the system serves to enhance accessibility and the user experience.

“MyDigital ID is more than a platform; it’s a cornerstone of Malaysia’s digital future. Our goal is to empower Malaysians with a secure and seamless way to engage with digital services, safeguarding their privacy and security,” he says.

My Digital ID Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems (Mimos), shared that further integration with government agency platforms is currently in progress.

The company was formed in January and tasked with managing and developing the national digital identification system under the National Security Council (MKN).

Mohd Mirza said he hopes for the system to be utilised in cross-border transactions in the future, while acting as an example for other countries in implementing their own digital identification systems.
