The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) wishes to inform the public that we are not conducting any activity related to scanning of the PhilID cards or the ePhilID, or any form of data collection or verification through unauthorized means. We strongly encourage the public to exercise caution and vigilance. Do not submit your PhilID or ePhilID, or any personal information to any individual or entity claiming to represent the PSA for scanning or data collection or verification. Such activities are unauthorized and could compromise your privacy and security.

Should you encounter any person or organization claiming to be associated with PSA requesting your PhilID or ePhilID for scanning or other suspicious activities, we urge you to report the same immediately to the Fraud Management Division of PSA through its email address at or visit the PhilSys Registration Center near you.

Your cooperation in reporting such incidents is vital in upholding the integrity of the Philippine Identification System (PhilSys) and safeguarding the privacy and security of every Filipino. Together, we can ensure a trusted and secure national identification system. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
