Version and Feature of NID Wallet APK
The latest version that is currently available is Version 1.1.35 which was updated on December 22, 2020. This new version fixed the crash issues with image capture faced in earlier versions. To use this app one requires a mobile phone with a camera that can scan QR code and an Internet connection.
The app also comes with a face identity verification feature to ensure secure access to a particular account created on the Bangladesh Election Commission website. This new version has increased the security in such a way that without the permission of a certain user his or her National ID cannot be collected, as face verification is mandatory to create an account and the said face verification is only possible through the app only.
Purpose of the NID Wallet APK
NID Wallet APK is required to create an account on the Bangladesh NID Application system from the Bangladesh Election Commission website. Without the app a person cannot claim the account from the website as a person must use the app for a QR code scan and Face scan from the front and both sides while registering on the website. The main purpose of the app is to increase security so that nobody can get access to a particular account without his or her permission and a user must be present with a smart phone when an account is created.
Previously, before the launching of the app, anybody could have created an account with just the details of National Identity Number and Date of Birth. But now a person must scan their face from the front and both sides before creating the account. This Face Scanning step has increased the security of a citizen’s account many fold.
Installing the NID Wallet APK
NID Wallet APK can be used on any android device that has an Android operating system 5.1 or later. The app can be downloaded from the Google play store for free. The app can be installed like any other app from the play store. A person who is using a smart phone for some time will find no difficulty installing the app. According to the Bangladesh Election Commission website, there is no app available for the iPhone but they are very soon expecting to release one for iPhone users that can be downloaded from the Apple Store.
Using the App
After installing the app like any other app from Playstore one can open the app easily. After opening the app a QR scan camera gets activated that is required to create an account on the Bangladesh Election Commission website. While registering on the website: https://services.nidw.gov.bd/nid-pub/ after providing personal details of NID number, Date of Birth, Present and Permanent address the website will provide a QR code scanning option that must be scanned by the app.
The following step is to scan the face from the front and from both sides. After that, a person can use their account on the Bangladesh Election Commission Website and will get access to all the services offered by Bangladesh Election Commission.
NID Wallet APK is not only a very easy app to use but also a very useful one. It increases the security of the national information of a citizen that cannot be accessed by anybody else which was not the case before the launching of the app. NID Wallet APK is a great initiative from the Bangladesh government to secure the details of its citizens on its road to the digitalization of the country.
