Lots of people can already carry credit cards and insurance information on their phones, and drivers in Delaware might be able to ad their driver's licenses to that list soon. The state is considering allowing drivers to use a digital license in addition to their normal plastic one.

The state Senate last week adopted a resolution directing [Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles] to study and consider digital licenses for motorists. The House has not yet considered the proposal.

Delaware isn't the first state to take on this idea. Iowa is planning to roll out a driver's license app in 2016. Delaware's digital driver's license would include all the same info as your physical license like birth date, photo and signature.

Not everyone is excited about digital ID apps, though. That's because they also carry some serious security risks.
