Everything will be performed thanks to a prosecution platform made by Beijing Haidian court built inside the application. The Court took the opportunity to clarify that even everything through the app is made online, the operations are pretty well secured.
The system will use Facial ID, Fingerprint recognition and ID card system to identify with precision a person and only then allow to access the data. After a user submit the documents regarding the lawsuit and its get accepted by the Court, both parties will receive a notification about the process situation.
The new system will directly get in touch with official government department simplifying the process and reducing the necessary timing. WeChat is already used as people’s official ID card in some Chinese provinces being able to replace the standard Chinese government ID card.
