ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

digital identity

Digital identity is a way to show who you are online. Think of it like a passport, but instead of showing your real name, picture, and date of birth, digital identity shows information like your username, email address, and the websites you use. This way, the websites you use can trust that you are the same person each time you log in, and can keep you safe by making sure other people don't pretend to be you.
