BankID on mobile
BankID on mobile works just like the usual BankID. The difference is that you do not need to bring the code chip. This makes BankID on mobile a flexible alternative, alternatively when you are on the go and do not have the code chip available.
With BankID on mobile, your BankID is stored on the mobile sim card. In BankID on the mobile service, you use your mobile number, date of birth and a self-selected PIN to log in. BankID on mobile worked even if you move SIM cards from one mobile to another. The service works abroad. Works on most mobiles and all mobile operators.

More than 3,000.000 active personal certificates (PersonalBankID) have been issued and a total of between 800,000 and 900,000 BankIDs are used every day.
