Deep Links Help you Integrate Digital ID Cards into your Existing Mobile App
What is deep linking?
Today, the ID123 app has added support for deep linking. Deep linking is a way to open a specific view or feature within a mobile app using a special link or URI. They enable two different apps to work together by giving them the ability to launch capabilities available in the other app using a URI. The URI for ID123 is “id123://”. This means that both schools and businesses can link to features in ID123 from their existing apps without asking a user to close their app or click an icon on the phone’s dashboard.
What is ID123?
