The social media platform formerly known as Twitter, now called X, has introduced a new policy for users of X Blue.

As reported by the media, users signing up for X Blue will be required to submit a selfie along with an official government ID photo.

For this verification process, the Israeli company AU10TIX software will handle the user’s personal data. This information will be stored for a period of 30 days as part of the procedure.

X mentioned that the information collected from a user’s profile will be used to enhance safety and security, particularly to prevent impersonation.

Many X users expressed discontent with the company’s choice to hold onto user data, citing concerns about the links certain employees have to Israeli intelligence. Others felt uneasy about entrusting their data to a company due to the numerous reported data breaches in the past.

Having played a role in developing identity verification systems for airports and border controls in the 1980s and 1990s, AU10TIX extended its services to include “digital spaces” in 2002, in response to the rise of the internet. Currently, it counts prominent clients like Uber, PayPal, and Google among its portfolio.
