Your digital ID card
Freja eID is a mobile app that enables you to verify your identity, sign documents electronically and show your Covid Certificate to prove you had a Covid-19 vaccine. As you can also use Freja eID to login to websites, it effectively serves as a password manager, mitigating security risks. Currently, over 300 online services accept Freja eID as proof of identity. In addition, PostNord, ATG, Kronans Apotek and Apoteksgruppen accept Freja eID in store. Freja eID is also accepted in Denmark, Norway, Finland and the UK.
How to use Freja eID
You don’t need a bank account to use Freja eID. You can register online by downloading the app and submitting an approved form of identity. However, if you want to get Freja eID Plus, which gives you access to government e-services, you need to validate your identity in person at one of Freja eID’s 2000 agents around Sweden. To use your Freja eID, simply tap the card in the app on your mobile and unlock it with biometrics or PIN to then show the screen to identify yourself. In some cases, staff might ask you to scan the QR code generated by Freja eID. This QR code expires every two minutes and needs to be refreshed.
