Bank ID. Safe, secure and easy
The first Norwegian customers were issued a BankID in 2004. At that time, the Norwegian banking sector had been working for four years on developing a joint infrastructure. Today 4 million Norwegians have a BankID. BankID is used by all the country’s banks, public digital services and an increasing number of enterprises in a wide range of sectors.
Electronic identification using BankID meets the official requirements that apply to identity verification and binding electronic signature. BankID is used by all the banks in Norway and can be used by all organisations and enterprises that are looking for secure and simple identification online.
