Frequently Asked Questions

Once you have downloaded and installed the Smart-ID application, you need to register an account. Smart-ID works across multiple devices and you can install the app on as many smart devices as you want – just remember that you’ll need to register a new account for each device.

Choose your registration method based on the type of account you want to open:

Smart-ID account will give you full access to e-services, online banking etc. You will be able to confirm transactions and sign documents with it, so you’ll be required to identify yourself to complete the registration process.

Smart-ID Basic account has more limited access: you can use it for online banking, but won’t be able to log in to other e-services, sign documents etc. The Smart-ID Basic account is available only in Latvia and Lithuania and you can create your account through bank link authentication. It might be the best option if you are a non-resident/foreigner without a Latvian or Lithuanian national ID-number or you want to register a Smart-ID for a minor.

NB! Read about using your corporate client credentials for registering Smart-ID Basic.
