99 launched on Thursday (23) the feature "identification card" for passengers of the application. The tool automatically generates, with each race, a page with information from the user so that the driver can recognize him. The card displays the data provided by the app to the driver, such as the name and destination of the trip. The passenger can then show the driver the smartphone screen with the information, without them having to talk to each other to start the race.

The idea is to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19 with the new feature, since it avoids the need for users to interact with each other. The function is available in the app for Android phones and iPhone (iOS) for 99 passengers when starting a race.

The identification card is automatically available on the 99 app for the passenger when ordering a trip. To access the function, just tap on the blue balloon on the right of the cell phone screen, which indicates the message "suggestion of identification during the pandemic".
The next page will display the passenger information that is provided to the driver to identify him and start the race. Then, the user must approach the place where the driver parked to pick him up and display the smartphone screen to pass the data.
The purpose of the tool is to reduce as much as possible the interaction between passenger and driver, to avoid contagion of the new coronavirus. However, using the feature is not mandatory in the application.

The identification card is one of the technologies that can help stop the Covid-19 pandemic. For example, the delivery service of supermarkets and online pharmacies means that people are no longer obliged to leave their homes to do their month shopping. Delivery applications have already won the option "contactless delivery", so that the user makes the payment online and does not need to interact with the delivery person when taking the order.
Using credit card with NFC is also an alternative, as it allows payment by approximation, so it is not necessary to enter the password to make purchases. Meanwhile, banks recommend using Internet Banking to avoid crowding at branches, reserving face-to-face assistance only for essential cases.
