mDL Uses in Retail


Mobile driver’s licenses (mDLs) serve as an alternative to physical driver’s licenses in retail scenarios where a customer is purchasing age-restricted items such as alcohol and tobacco products. Age and identity verification through the holder’s photo are the main attributes needed for these transactions, keeping the rest of the mDL user’s information private. For customers who choose to make a payment using their phone, the entire checkout experience could be completed without the need to pull out a wallet.
