The Telegram messenger team has introduced the Passport authorization service. Passport is an authorization mechanism for services that require personal data such as financial application and ICO projects.
According to the company representatives, the technology for authorizing a new service is protected by end-to-end encryption. In the future, all the information from Passport developers plan to move to a decentralized cloud.
Using Telegram Passport, people will be able to safely transfer services to e-mail addresses and phone numbers, as well as passport scans and other important personal information.
The first service using Passport is the ePayments payment system. Representatives of the Telegram has already published a guide on how to connect their resource to the new authorization system.
