Swedish BankID

BankID is the leading electronic identification solution in Sweden. BankID has been developed by a number of banks for use by members of the public, authorities, and companies.

Individuals with a Swedish personnummer (Swedish national identification number) can use their BankID for digital identification, as well as to sign transactions and documents. The customer’s identity is guaranteed by the bank issuing the BankID. In addition, according to Swedish law, and within the European Union, BankID is an advanced signature. This means that a signature made with a BankID is legally binding.

BankID is available on smart card, soft certificate, mobile phones, and iPads and other tablet devices.
