Online identification now also possible using your Swiss ID card

In order to be able to provide legally valid electronic signatures, you first need to have your identity verified. To this end, SwissSign offers free identity verification – either on site or online via the SwissID App. You can now also complete the 24/7 online identification process using your Swiss ID card. The only other thing you need is your mobile phone.

Here’s how it works

  1. Download SwissID from the App Store or Google Play Store
  2. Open the SwissID App and click on "ID"
  3. Scan your identification document (passport or ID card) and follow the instructions to verify security features
  4. Take a video selfie for the "liveness check"
