How to log on and approve with MitID app

The MitID app is an easy and secure way to log on and approve with MitID.

Many of us always have a mobile phone or tablet at hand - it makes it easy to log on and approve with the MitID app.

When you e.g. use a website where you have to log on or approve with MitID, you enter your user ID. You will then be asked to approve the action with the MitID app. Open your MitID app, enter your PIN code (or use facial recognition or fingerprints) and swipe to approve. Before you swipe, you need to scan a QR code if you use a computer to log on from.

When several people in the same household use the same tablet, you can use the same MitID app, but you cannot use face recognition or fingerprints to approve. Then you need a separate PIN code.

Pay attention before swiping

When you swipe in the MitID app, it means that you perform the action that you are doing, such as approve the transfer of money. If the text in the MitID app does not correspond to what you want to do – or if you have started a transaction based on e.g. af call, an email or a visit from someone, stop immediately.
