The Canadian government will be assisting in the testing of a new app allowing travelers to digitize information with authorities before flying, Global News reports. The “Known Traveler Digital Identity” system gives individuals the opportunity to store data such as their residency cards, countries they have visited, and biometric information such as facial recognition scans and fingerprints.
