Will the NHS COVID-19 App be Used as an Identity Document for the “Right to Rent” and “Right to Work?”


Over the weekend, I shared a video from an unknown gentleman who brilliantly broke down the globalist digital ID agenda. 

The man discusses a digital ID that holds all your personal information to secure your place in the system. 

Your digital ID would contain items such as medical records, financial info, criminal history, tax recordings, or even a carbon footprint. 

Digital vaccine passports provide the perfect trojan horse to implement this system to ensure every human on Earth has a unique digital ID. 

That explains the feverish campaign to inoculate everyone against COVID-19 and have them download a COVID-19 app. 

The app will show proof of inoculation, but that’s only the beginning. 

Once you have the app with your COVID-19 inoculation status, other personalized data can be downloaded onto it. 

When each resident has their unique digital ID, governments can include a digital currency or potentially a social credit system. 

The United Kingdom appears on the fast track to implement this system and is outpacing the United States in its development. 

Previously, the United Kingdom announced a consultation to form a central bank digital currency (CBDC) and plans to start a social credit system

In a recent announcement, it appears the United Kingdom is organizing the vehicle to potentially put these plans into motion.

 The vehicle is the NHS COVID-19 app. 

While it’s not confirmed the NHS app will become a digital ID, the latest government pages exhibit disturbing details.

With the NHS COVID-19 app, it appears the United Kingdom is laying the foundation to use digital IDs to approve your ability to live and work.

If you don’t have a digital ID, then no job or apartment for you.

That should scare the daylights out of everyone in the free world. listed the following information on the “identity document validation technology in the right to work and right to rent schemes:”

The Home Office and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) are working with DCMS as it develops proposals for new legislation to establish a UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework. This framework will set out the rules and standards for organisations to follow in order to carry out secure, trustworthy, and consistent digital identity checks.

The trust framework was initially launched in February 2021 as an early prototype (alpha). It has since undergone two rounds of public consultation, to be thoroughly tested with services, industries, organisations and released to potential users. The framework continues to be developed and the next stage (beta version) will begin in early 2022, ahead of being formalised in legislation.

Following the positive feedback received about the ability to conduct right to work and right to rent checks remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Home Office initiated a review of the availability of specialist technology to support a system of digital checks in the future.

This review has now concluded, and this update sets out the key outcomes.

The Home Office recognises the benefits the adjusted checking process has brought and are mindful of the shift towards increased hybrid and remote working models.

As a result, the Home Office will enable employers and landlords to use certified Identification Document Validation Technology (IDVT) service providers to carry out digital identity checks on their behalf for many who are not in scope to use the Home Office online services, including British and Irish citizens. The relevant changes to legislation will take effect from 6 April 2022.

This development will align with DBS’ proposal to enable digital identity checking within their pre-employment checking process, through the introduction of its Identity Trust Scheme.

For employers, the introduction of digital identity checking into the Schemes will mean they can assure prospective employees’ identities, using consistent and more secure methods, reducing risk and allowing them to recruit in a safer way.

Making these changes to the Schemes will achieve two things – it will:

  1. Allow those in scope to verify their identity remotely, prove their eligibility to work or rent and apply for DBS checks. Using IDVT allows people to upload images of their personal documents, instead of presenting physical documents to a prospective employer – reducing time and mitigating risk.
  2. Allow private sector IDVT service providers to become independently certified by UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) accredited assessors to ensure the technology meets the Government Standards and the applicant’s data is protected.

Enabling the use of IDVT for right to work, right to rent and DBS checks will help to support long-term post pandemic working practices, accelerate the recruitment and onboarding process, improve employee mobility and enhance the security and integrity of the checks. The technology utilised across the identity process removes human error in terms of identifying fraudulent documents or inaccuracies and will support the Home Office, DBS and DCMS in driving improvements through their delivery partners.

In January 2022, the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework will open for providers to begin the certification process. IDVT service providers will need to become certified against the trust framework rules, alongside any requirements specific to the particular Schemes. The timing and alignment of the Right to Work, Right to Rent, and DBS Scheme changes ensures providers can undertake a single certification for these checks from the outset.

This will provide a secure underpinning of robust rules for providers to meet, test the real-world implementation of the trust framework during the beta phase of testing, and ensure providers are on track to meet the rules of the future multi-use case state for digital identity solutions.

On a separate page, listed the categories of personal data the NHS COVID-19 app will potentially collect (for now):

What special category of data we process (Description of data processed)

Data held only on the app on your phone will include:

  • Data concerning health – such as your COVID-19 test result and your isolation status
  • Venue details held only on your phone, might be indicative of other special categories of data. However, these details are only stored in your app. The summary or count included in the analytical data set does not include these details.

For example, a venue may indicate:

  • Racial or ethnic origin;
  • Political opinions;
  • Religious or philosophical beliefs;
  • Trade union membership;
  • Data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.
  • However, our systems cannot access or process this data we note it here to support transparency.

The central systems that we use to update app users’ processes COVID-19 test results for app users and enables the app to update their status. In order to ensure that the correct results are returned to the correct use we treat this as personal data, though we protect the identity of the app user (through pseudonymisation in GDPR terms) and promptly delete the data from our systems. So, for the central system we process:

  • Data concerning health – such as your COVID-19 test result

The analytical data set, submitted every 6-hours, is managed to ensure that app users cannot be identified.
