Iraqi youth bank on Mobixie to prove identity

By : |August 30, 2007 0

NEW YORK: Iraqi students supporting the Iraqi government and fearing for their lives have found a high-tech solution to prove their personal identity after several incidents where Mujahideen militia forces kidnapped and confiscated passports and personal documentation issued by the new Iraqi government.

To avoid misidentification and to issue new passports the students are using mobixie.com, a mobile social network, to upload photos of their passports and other personal records so that they will be able to retrieve these documents from their mobile phone at any time or at check points in case the documents are confiscated or lost.

A spokesman for the site said that Mobixie was designed for mobile users to upload, download and share user-generated content such as games, videos and ringtones, and they were surprised to see that the people in troubled areas are using it to safeguard and retrieve their personal documents from their mobile.
