The prime minister said over nine million Poles have created an electronic “trusted profile” in two years.

The “trusted profile” is a way of proving somebody’s identity on the internet, and works as an electronic signature.

"In two years, we have managed to achieve a result that had not been achieved during the previous seven years,” said Mateusz Morawiecki. “In all, more than nine million people use a trusted profile."

He added that electronic and online services for civil affairs are rapidly developing in Poland.

"Citizens are discovering that this modern, virtual contact with offices is possible, effective, convenient and time saving, while providing a better quality of services," said Morawiecki.
