Social Inclusion. National IDs can promote social inclusion by providing official identification to people that usually have no access to similar documents.  The disadvantages  1. Surveillance and Privacy Rights Violations. A national ID system gives the government unprecedented access to a huge cache of its citizens’ personal data.   2. Infringements of Other Civil Liberties. Privacy violations usually precede graver human rights abuses. Any government with the ability to keep tabs on its population via an ID system also has the ability to resort to more oppressive activities, involving other related rights.  3. Doubts over Its Effectiveness Against Crime and Terrorism. A national ID system is one item in this wish list given by governments if asked what do tools they need to combat crime and other threats. But in 2005 report by the Senate Economic Planning Office noted the absence of any proof that a national ID system increases security against terrorism.  4. Function Creep. Defined as the use of a tool or system for purposes beyond that originally declared, function creep is a risk to any individual registered in an ID system. In the draft bill pending at the Senate, the protection against unlawful disclosure of registered information does not apply if it is in the interest of “public health or safety”.   5. Costs. Identity management programs are expensive to establish and maintain and require significant financial commitment from the government. For 2018, the government has allotted P2 billion to the Philippine Statistics Authority to prepare for the rollout of an ID system.  6. Data Security. Government ability to protect data under its custody is also caused for concern.   7. Technical Complexity and Logistical Issues. Other factors that make an ID system difficult to implement include: (a) migration; (b) access to registration centers by citizens and residents; and (c) ill-equipped and unprepared registration centers.
