Authenticating your Smart-ID account

Registering your account is easy – follow the instructions on the screen and you’ll be fine. The only thing to remember is that you need to authenticate your account either by:

  • using your ID-card or mobile-ID
  • visiting a bank office
  • banklink confirmation (only in Latvia and Lithuania)
  • or our new and exciting option: biometric identification (scanning your passport/ID-card at home, using your own mobile phone)
