The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) has assured residents that the UAE Pass is highly secure.
The authority was responding to social media posts about the alleged fraud by using the UAE Pass.
“TDRA stresses the importance of exercising caution when receiving any notifications or login requests. It is essential to thoroughly verify these requests before clicking any buttons to avoid potential fraud attempts by individuals seeking unauthorised access to your accounts,” the authority posted on microblogging platform X, formerly called Twitter.
According to the UAE government website, the UAE Pass app is the first national digital identity and signature solution that enables users to identify themselves to service providers through a smartphone-based authentication.
