Every B# ID is unique and references only one specific entity. B#IDs are universal. They can identify all the people, organisations, places or things in complex systems. B# IDs are always registered, indexed and searchable free of charge. It costs nothing to create, assign or receive a B# ID. Each B# ID is a primary key for the same entity across any data system. B# IDs enable free data exchange between users based on their own permissions.
Refugees and victims of trafficking do not usually carry physical identity documents, or may have them lost or seized. If information falls into the wrong hands, the family and friends they left behind may be at risk. Refugees might move through several states before finding a home. Documentation in the cloud that is accessible by a mobile phone and password can be the difference between life and loss.
B# IDs provide victims of trafficking a way to show the agencies helping them their documents, photos and other evidence of who they are. This can mean access services for resettlement or integration securely and privately to avoid reprisal.
