Launched in 2017, itsme® (also known as Belgian Mobile ID) is a smartphone-based eID that provides a secure and convenient way to identify yourself, share your ID data, log in to apps and websites and sign documents.

itsme®: Belgian Mobile ID

Digital ID for Belgium and the Netherlands

Use itsme® to log into your online banking and confirm payments, get access to public services, sign documents, create online accounts, log in safely to your internet of things and confirm orders – all without the hassle of creating and remembering usernames and passwords. The number of websites and apps accepting itsme® already covers a variety of services and keeps growing.

Getting started with itsme®

To get started, first download the itsme® app. In Belgium, you can use your eID or bank card (with your card reader) to create your account. In the Netherlands, you can use your eID or passport. On the itsme® website you have to create an identification token to start the sign-up process. The app will guide you through a number of security steps until you are able to choose your personal 5-digit itsme® code. This will be the code you use for any future logins through itsme®.

Itsme® for business

Itsme® helps businesses provide a better experience to their Belgian and Dutch customers. Make it easy to log in, approve transactions and sign documents. Improve KYC processes and streamline onboarding processes by giving your customers the convenience of using their itsme® eID to share their data quickly and securely. Reduce abandonment rates by ensuring data completeness and accuracy the first time.


itsme® is ISO27001 certified and conforms with Belgian laws and EU laws regarding digital identity, e-signatures and data sharing, including eIDAS and GDPR. Data is always encrypted when stored or communicated with itsme® partners.
