Something’s wrong with the way we are online…
Other people decide what we see, hear or read;
We have lost control over our ‘Digital Identity’
Dignity is the ethical foundation on which we build a humanist society.
While the way that dignity is interpreted depends on each person individually, it is the truth at the very core of what we perceive is right that each is due their own part of dignity.
Article 1 EU Declaration of Human Rights:
“Human dignity is inviolable. It must be respected and protected.”
“The value of our Digital Identities is far greater
than the money that is being made with them.”
Digital Dignity is the sovereignty over your Digital Identity
To achieve dignity in our online world, we need to achieve these 3 things:
Insight, Sovereignty and a Connection between our Digital Identities.
We need non-invasive, user friendly tools to manage our fractured Digital Identities.
In many countries we still need a safe legal structure protecting our ownership over our Digital Identities.
As individuals, we grow through our meaningful connections. Allow our Digital Selves to do the same.
Access-rights based connections between Digital Identities will radically improve people’s lives for comfort, sharing, learning, to earn and to contribute to society.

On average, each of us has over 40 apps on our phones and 300+ personal registered accounts. While we control and see the information we entered ourselves, there is also a wealth of information about us that we don’t have access to. Details like insight into our behaviour, the way we spend money, what type of neighbourhoods we live in, or how likely we are to respond to certain types of motivation are typically not available to us.
“Imagine you had access to all the information ever collected about you.
All of the profiling ever done at your fingertips and interconnected to provide you with insights you never had before. Now picture how that might change your life and the decisions you could now make.”
Our Digital Identity is made up of all the available online information about us. It is made up of identifiers such as email, customer number, phone number, or name and behavioural patterns such as how we move around, when and what we buy, what we watch, and what we like or dislike.
Once the service we originally signed up for trades “their” part of our Digital Identity with another service, it becomes nearly impossible for us to trace. The identifiers and behavioural patterns we access to are almost immediately out of your reach.
To gain Sovereignty over our Digital Identity, we are missing non-invasive, user-friendly tools to manage those fractured identifiers and patterns, and in many countries we still miss a safe legal structure protecting our ownership over our Digital Identities.
As individuals, we grow through our connections. Our Digital Identities can do the same!
If I share my phone number with a friend, they can always have the current one available to them. Connecting with others and comparing information allows me to make better informed decisions about big things like health and job, or small things like where to go on holiday or what to eat tomorrow. By safely and securely sharing certain and specific details, we can react to challenges as a community before they become a crisis.
Connected Digital Identities have the capacity to improve people’s lives radically.
