Who is behind MitID?

MitID is the result of a well-established and unique collaboration between the Danish Agency for Digitisation and the Danish banks.

The Danish Agency for Digitisation represents the Danish state, regions, and municipalities, while the Danish banks are represented by FR1 - a subsidiary of Finans Danmark.

Why a partnership?

A collaboration between the public parties and the Danish banks offers a number of advantages:

  • Continuation of success with one common digital ID.
  • When we only have one digital ID, we use it more often. It provides recognizability and familiarity.
  • By sharing the cost of development, the public sector and banks do not have to spend money on developing their own digital IDs. That's common sense.
