dígito (formal), cifra

Explanation:
Oxford Spanish-English Dictionary

digit / "dIdZ@t / n
1 (Math) dígito m (frml); a five-digit number un número de cinco cifras or (frml) dígitos
2 (Anat) dedo m

Obviously the first meaning belongs. As you can see, just as Thierry LOTTE pointed out, "dígito" is in the formal sociolinguistic register. When the conversation is not formal, the word is "cifra"
