MitID authenticator is blocked

A MitID authenticator can be temporarily blocked or revoked.

MitID authenticators can be blocked permanently or temporarily.

Always block your authenticator, if you suspect it has been compromised, that is, if you fx have lost or suspect that someone else is abusing your authenticator. 

A MitID authenticator can be blocked due to security concerns. If you enter the wrong PIN code too many times, your MitID app will be blocked, and you need to contact MitID support or a citizen service centre to have it opened again.

MitID chip

If you MitID chip is permanently blocked, you will be able to use the physical chip again and add it as a new MitID authenticator.

The explanation is that as you add a new MitID chip, a security element is created in the MitID chip with a corresponding element in the MitID solution. If your MitID chip is permanently blocked, then the security element in the MitID solution is deleted. When the same MitID chip is added again, then a new security element is created, thus enabling the physical MitID chip to be reused.
