Small business owners will be able to easily verify the age of their customers with a new mobile application.

South Korean telecom majors SK telecom Co., KT Corp., and LG Uplus Corp. announced Wednesday that they have launched the PASS Mobile ID Verification Service.

The service enables the verification of age and identification authenticity through the QR code identification of the PASS mobile ID, which holds the same legal validity as physical identification.

The PASS mobile ID is a service that verifies resident registration cards and driver’s licenses using a mobile phone.

The new app will allow business owners to simply scan the QR code on their customer’s mobile ID in the PASS app.
