Using Smart-ID is secure and safe
Your personal data is always protected even if you lose your phone. It is much safer than using code cards as no one can get access to your information!
Smart-ID is the easiest, fastest and safest way to authenticate yourself online! Forget complicated user names and passwords – this is a safer and easier way to check your online bank account, access e-services and sign documents.
Biometric registration is an ideal solution if you’ve been a Smart-ID user before and need to register (or renew) an account, but can’t use your ID-card or Mobile-ID. You need an NFC-enabled smart device, the latest version of Smart-ID app and a passport or ID-card with an electronic chip.
Upgrading is very simple: just follow the on-screen instructions and it will take only a few minutes! Click on the expiration notice to begin the upgrade process. The Smart-ID upgrading option will be available for up to 3 months before it expires. To check the validity of your Smart-ID, open the app menu (three-line icon) and from there “User info”…
From November 2018, Smart-ID is recognised as a QSCD (Qualified Signature Creation Device). It means that electronic signatures given with Smart-ID have the same legal standing as signatures given by hand (QES level) and are accepted throughout the European Union. Read more about the levels of electronic signatures.
Signing documents with Smart-ID is easy.
First of all: check that your Smart-ID has the right account level by opening User info from your Smart-ID app menu. If it says Smart-ID Qualified Electronic Signature, you are good to go. If it says anything else, you need to upgrade your account level: update the app, delete your existing account and register a new one.
Keeping your Smart-ID app regularly updated helps to ensure that your data is protected and that the app works smoothly. Without regular updates your Smart-ID app can become outdated and therefore unsupported and unsafe. Automatic updates are the easiest way to ensure your app is up to date and is secure.
For your protection Smart-ID will block the use of outdated apps. If this happens to you you’ll see an error message explaining the issue every time you try to use Smart-ID.
