Activate your ID card’s DigiD login function
You must activate your ID card’s DigiD login function before you can use it for login purposes.
Activating the login function in 3 steps
There are 3 steps to activating your ID card’s login function:
- After you have collected your new ID card you will receive a letter from DigiD with a PIN. If you apply for your ID from abroad, you can have the letter with the PIN sent to a correspondence address. That can be your home or other address abroad or an address in the Netherlands.
- Use this PIN to activate your ID card’s login function in Mijn DigiD. You do not have to do this within a certain window of time.
- Change the temporary PIN to a personal PIN.
Didn’t receive your letter, lost your letter or forgot your PIN?
