ID card or Mobile-ID required to post comments on ERR

err_comment_auth

In the Estonian and Russian language versions of Estonian public broadcasting portal Err.ee comments will be allowed only after identification with ID card or Mobile-ID.

Err.ee reported that for a wider audience commentators still remain anonymous and can use nicknames. However, their identification data – name and personal identity number – if necessary, will be available only to the chief editor, but not other media staff or readers. As explained ERR, user identification will allow if necessary to contact the commentators, for example, to find out further information.

Changes do not affect the English version of ERR.ee, because its users are mainly foreigners.
