Worldcoin Launches World ID 2: Enhancing Authentication Flexibility

Worldcoin Launches New Version of World ID

  • Worldcoin launches World ID 2.0, integrated with Shopify, Mercado Libre, Reddit, and Telegram.
  • This new version offers flexibility in authentication levels.
  • Shopify stores can now customize the required integration level.

The blockchain project Worldcoin has recently unveiled ‘World ID 2.0,’ an enhanced version of its World ID functionality.

This update now integrates with major platforms such as Shopify, Discord, Mercado Libre, Reddit, Telegram, and even Minecraft.

This integration allows users to prove their humanity on these platforms, a crucial step in fighting bots and online fraud.

“The major new feature of World ID 2.0 is the introduction of World ID Apps, making the use of World ID on various online services easier. These applications allow users to verify their existing accounts and label them with a verification status, such as a verification badge.” – Worldcoin statement

You can find these applications on the Worldcoin online store.

Customization and Enhanced Security for Users

The novelty of World ID 2.0 lies in its flexibility: application developers can choose from different authentication levels, ranging from ‘lite’ to ‘max,’ thus strengthening security principles and user privacy.

This range of options ensures better adaptation to the security needs of applications while respecting user confidentiality.

Depending on the required security level, applications can opt for a lighter identification based on the user’s device or a stronger authentication, this time requiring verification via the Worldcoin Orb, thus achieving an optimal balance between ease of access and data protection.

Features That Aim to Reduce Fraud Levels

Worldcoin states that these new features will help reduce losses related to bots without users having to disclose their personal information to applications.

This advancement is particularly relevant as, according to a CNBC report, annual losses due to return fraud, bots, and coupon stacking amount to approximately $100 billion for retailers.
