Gd morning...

I don''t have Kuwait''s mobile number available with me. Currently I am in india. And my civil id is inside PACI office''s machine in Kuwait.

Can someone suggest how to activate Kuwait mobile id app in my mobile, as this is not accepting indian mobile number (only 8 digits allowed in mobile section)

This is a very good development. However, the App has flaws, as I experienced. It is displaying a wrong passport number. It has login problems, it asked me to change the pin, which I did and the next time I tried to login with the new Pin, it displayed an error "wrong pin". Multiple attempts failed, even with the old pin. Moreover, there are only limited number of attempts for wrong login. When I reached the last attempt, I got frustrated and uninstalled the app itself from my phone. May not install it soon again.
Most important is the passport number, which could land you in trouble while using the digital ID. Better to use the present card IDs till all the errors are fixed.
One more drawback of this app is that it cannot be installed on older Android phones and even in some new android phones, like Lenovo. The play store doesn''t list this app in such mobile instruments.
I request the Govt to please address these issues first.
