MitID is replacing NemID. You will use MItID verify your identity on the internet in the same way you use NemID today. For example:
MitID can be used in different ways. You can use the MitID app to swipe or get your codes using the MitID code diplay, the MitID audio code reader or the MitID chip. You can get and use the MitID app, the MitID code display and the MitID audio code reader for free. Read more about the different MitID authenticators here
NemID is a secure solution at the moment but with the introduction of MitID, we enhance the security dimension both now and in the future. One security enhancement is the phasing out the code card since it unfortunately presents a potential security problem. Another security enhancement is that we enable more transparentcy when in the process of executing a transaction. In addition you will be informed via the MitID app, SMS or E-mail, if another authenticator is being activated, or if you are using MitID from a computer that you haven’t previously used for this purpose.
Even though you have got MitID, you must still keep your NemID until further notice. In a transitional period you can still be asked to use NemID. NemID closes in the summer 2023.
MitID will not cost you anything, as a starting point.
It is possible for you to get MitID as a 13 years old. It is an offer to anyone, who needs to access the different self-service solutions, e.g. online banking, Borger.dk, og just checking taxes for your part time job. As a parent, if your child is 13 and needs MitID, you and your child must visit your citizen service centre to get his/hers MitID. The reason for your physical visit to your citizen service centre is to document your identity thus avoid identity theft.
