SwissID – your digital identity.

With SwissID your online processes become easier and more secure.

SwissID is the trustful ecosystem which connects people and organisations in the digital world. Online service providers (operators of websites and apps) receive simple access to a large number of potential customers who are active online in Switzerland.

SwissID guarantees secure data exchange between the online service provider and user without itself knowing or saving the data. The user has to enable all SwissID data transfers and therefore always retains control over who may retrieve which data and when.

With SwissID, online service providers represent processes on the internet which previously required an inconvenient media disruption. Thanks to the modular services, SwissID provides a tailor-made solution for all needs of efficient outsourcing. This increases the conversion rate and saves costs.

What is SwissID?

SwissID is the digital identity of Switzerland. With it, in the near future, users will have simple and secure access to many online services (websites and apps). They easily log in, transfer personal data, identify themselves or provide documents with a legally valid signature. They retain full control over the use of their data at all times here.
