DENVER – Tuesday, myColorado™ - State of Colorado’s Official Mobile App™ - launched the new Affinity Icon for its Colorado Digital ID. Now Coloradans have the option to personalize the back of their Digital ID with one of 16 icons representing a preference, hobby or interest. The Affinity Icon is free for residents to add, change or remove at any time and can only be done through the myColorado app.
“True to our trailblazing nature, we are the only state to celebrate our differences by letting Coloradans personalize the one thing we all share - our driver license,” said Lu Cordova, Strategic Planning & Projects, Governor’s Office.
The Affinity Icon’s development marked the completion of the Iconic Colorado initiative, which consisted of a new Colorado driver license design revealed in February of this year in partnership with the Governor’s Office, the Department of Revenue and its Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Colorado Digital ID enables residents to create an electronic version of their Colorado driver license or state-issued identification (ID) card and can be displayed on smartphones for proof of ID, age and address. The Digital ID is a secure, unique visual representation of the legally-accepted official physical format of a person’s identification. Colorado State Patrol, 16 law enforcement agencies and more than 400 merchants across the state accept the Digital ID.
Residents can join nearly 900,000 current myColorado users by downloading the app to their smartphones via the Apple App Store or Google Play. Visit myColorado.gov to learn more about myColorado and the Colorado Digital ID.
