ID cards are pretty versatile, able to be used for a variety of different things.
An ID card can...
- open a door.
- pay for your lunch.
- record your attendance at work.
- log you into your work computer.
However, that doesn't mean an ID card can do it all.

But you have to resist! Using your ID badge for the tasks below may seem like a quick, easy solution, but it'll ultimately shorten the lifespan of your credential and cost your employer money down the line.
