Carrying identification cards to prove name or age could be a thing of the past, thanks to the development of new technology from Yoti. The British company use smartphone technology to check IDs in nightclubs and supermarkets and, in February, five bars and clubs in Bournemouth started using Yoti for users to prove they were over 18, as have some tattoo parlours in the Dorset town. There have been over one million downloads of Yoti’s app which is also being used in Estonia, India and Jersey.
