We have the following recommendations aimed at ensuring that your ID card/digi-ID with the microchip serve you for as long as possible:
- Protect the ID card from abrupt temperature fluctuations, radiation, moisture and long exposure to direct sunlight as these factors can damage the microchip.
- Do not twist or bend the ID card as the card/microchip can get damaged (for instance, keeping the card in the rear trouser pocket can result in the card becoming bent or scratched).
- Protect the ID card from coming into contact with sharp objects. Make sure that the card does not come into contact with metals objects (for instance: keys, wallet buckle, etc.).
- Protect the ID card from water, chemical substances and their vapours, ionising, ultraviolet and roentgen radiation and electrical charges. Do not place the card in a strong magnetic field. If moisture gets on the ID card, you must wipe the microchip dry as soon as possible.
