Mastercard has announced working with Australia Post and Deakin University to expand tests of Mastercard’s digital identity service ID, to verify students taking exams online.

Mastercard also recently announced a partnership with Optus, one of Australia’s most trusted telco brands, to provide its customers a simpler and more secure way to prove their identity online and in-store.

Mastercard is spreading their surveillance and extractive vacuum into the classrooms.
