Data Capture Solutions for mDL's (Mobile Driver's Licenses)

Equip your establishment for the future of digital identity credentials. Socket Mobile has the tools you need.


The New Age of Digital Identity

A new digital society is emerging. Everything from credit cards to concert tickets can be stored and scanned on any mobile device, anywhere. Every day, mobile credentials continue to replace physical cards and papers that we used to carry in our wallets and purses, and we're now making the same progress for driver's licenses and digital identity. Many states have already begun to roll out systems for mobile driver's license usage. It's crucial to equip your applications for this new technology.

Retail, commercial and government applications need to be ready for the new electronic age of digital identity and verification for restricted goods and services. Socket Mobile's barcode scanners and NFC readers help simplify this process. We provide reliable mDL readers that capture data from the mobile credential and transfer it to the retail app, which then uses the data to decide whether or not to grant access to goods or services.

Socket Mobile products can also read credentials following ISO18013-5, which is being adopted in many jurisdictions.

mDLs are here, and more are coming your way. Socket Mobile provides the data capture solutions your app needs to adapt to this new age.
