Smart-ID support for Apple Watch

Smart-ID, as an app-based secure authentication and signing solution, always has been user-friendly and intuitive.

Now, Smart-ID is also available on Apple Watch.

A solution with multiple applications for making your everyday life more convenient. One of them – for working from your computer when your phone is nowhere near, but your Apple Watch is right there.

Just as easy, convenient, and safe.

No Download

No need to download a separate app.

Authentication + signing

Applicable for both authentication and electronic signing.


Secure – only the PIN entry dialogue will be available on your watch so that your account information cannot be changed (e.g. deleted) from the watch.

Before you start using Smart-ID on your Apple Watch, keep in mind that:

  1. You must update Smart-ID application on your phone to at least version 23.7.
  2. Your phone must be connected to your Apple Watch – it should be within Bluetooth range.
  3. For increased data security and protection, be sure to enable passcode on your Apple Watch.

We strongly recommend setting a passcode on your Apple Watch before you start using Smart-ID
