The Irish minister responsible for mental health has suggested that all public services cards be linked to social media accounts to verify users’ identities.

RTE News reports that Jim Daly, the Irish minister responsible for mental health and older people, has recently called for all public services cards to be linked to the social media accounts of card users to verify their identity. Daly has reportedly brought this issue to the European Commission to explore the possibility of implementing social media linking as standard practice.

The Irish minister seemed to show disregard for basic privacy in an interview on Claire Byrne Live saying that he believes “child protection trumps data protection”. Daly stated that he hoped to see social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook applying to the Department for Social Protection to issue verification codes to users to be linked to their public services cards.

Daly stated that he hopes that this measure would prevent the use of fake identities and stop adults from targeting children. Daly’s proposal is reminiscent of a proposal by the European Commission in 2016 which insisted that state-issued ID cards should be used to log into social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
