Functionalities

This is why a login with SwissID is so secure

  • Strong password

    SwissID requires a very strong and secure password – this allows you to establish trust with your customers.

  • Second factor

    With a second factor (e.g. the SwissID App), your customers add an extra level of security to their SwissID account.

Not just secure – user-friendly as well.

  • Log in without a password

    Added security and convenience: With the SwissID App as a FIDO-compliant means of identification in the future, your customers can log in securely and without a password.

Verified identities

We take care of the identification process for you.

The right level of trust for your digital presence

There are different identity requirements depending on the type of online platform. SwissID distinguishes between two different levels of trust. The identification process is free of charge for your customers and takes place online via the SwissID App (e.g. for electronic signature) or in person on site (for electronic patient record). 

As a basis, SwissID users are given a SwissID account by entering their name and email address. This serves as a simple and secure login for different online applications that do not require proof of identity.
In addition to this, there are two trust levels.
1. Verified identity level 1:
- Access to online portals such as insurance companies, pension funds or e-commerce platforms.
- Online debt collection register extract orders via the SwissID app.
The identity check is done using the SwissID app.
2. Verified identity level 2:
- Access to the electronic patient record (EPR) or e-banking.
- Conclusion of contracts using a qualified electronic signature (QES).
The identity check is done using the SwissID app (for electronic signature) or in person (for qualified electronic signature and electronic patient record).
