It said the number of those who downloaded the application exceeded 2 million people, as it was a requirement for entering public and private facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship Ahmed Al-Hanandeh said that some 400,000 people had activated their accounts on the Sanad application, 150,000 people activated the digital identity, while 2 million people downloaded the application on their phones.

The government launched the Sanad application in February 2020 as part of the executive package five of the government’s economic program to support “electronic services and improve the business environment”.

Following that, several updates were made to the application to solve glitches.

People can sign into the Sanad application with a unified password and username, instead of multiple passwords to complete government transactions.

The ministry said that the most prominent services in the latest version of the Sanad application is the digital signature, digital verification of signed documents, requesting data updates, and resetting the digital identity password.

The application also makes possible inquiries about companies and individual institutions through the national number, inquiries about judicial implementation, competitive ranking, and traffic violations.
