You should test the information in your Smart IDs every time you update them.
This will take you through the experience of what a third party – such as a police officer, paramedic or Good Samaritan – and show what they would see when they scan or visit the ID tag.
You will get a chance to adjust the security setup of your Smart ID as to what sections, if any, are visible when a linked tag is scanned. Repeat the test view action after every change to your Smart ID.
Testing your Smart ID is easy:
- On “My Records” page, there is a “view” button next to every Tag ID .
Clicking it will open another browser window and let you view the Smart ID contents just like another person seeing your smart tag for the first time.
- Make sure the information displays correctly, and security settings work as you expect.
- Note that if applicable, you will receive “view notifications” for your test views…
You can also use the “Test view” of your Smart ID to get a printout of the information in your smart ID.
On the “view” screen, enter any password if needed, then you can expand the record sections of interest and obtain a printout – by clicking the button near the top right of the view screen:
To display all available sections in the view, click the button.
