Get started with MitID

There are more ways of getting MitID. For all of them to apply, you must confirm your identity – so no one can pretend to be you. You must create a user-ID and decide how to use MitID, e.g. with the MitID app or MitID code display. Remember to hold on to your NemID for now, also when you get MitID.

Keep your NemID 

When you get your MitID, you need to keep your NemID until further notice - so keep your code card or you NemID app. As NemID is phased out, a small number of providers will still allow you to use NemID, This will continue until NemID is finally phased out. Your bank or the Danish Agency for Digitisation will inform you, when NemID is phased out. Until then, you are not required to do anything.

Help others with MitID

Even though support is offered by both MitID and your bank, it is sometimes nice to get support from someone you know and trust - you just need to be aware of what is allowed and what is not allowed. Remember that MitID is personal and private - absolutely. If you ask for support from someone you trust and know, it is a good idea to show them this page, so they become familiar with the restrictions.
