The Philippine ID system, PhilSys, is registered by 75.8 million Filipinos.
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) has expressed its desire to rapidly set up a digital ID program in collaboration with the private sector, to facilitate transactions between businesses and government entities.

The PSA began a tactic for issuance which included the development of a website for registered individuals to acquire a PDF version of their ePhillD onto a smartphone.

Incorporating digital IDs into a digital wallet with other app services, like ePrescription, banking, driver's licenses and government documents, is a viable option.
