What is DigiD?

Language selection:English

DigiD is a means of identifying yourself when accessing services online. It allows you to access and use these services securely. You can also use DigiD if you are located outside the Netherlands and to log in to organisations in other European countries.

You can use your DigiD to log in to Dutch government, care institution, educational institution and pension fund websites. It shows organisations that you are who you say you are.

European login

DigiD also enables you to log in to certain organisations in other European countries.


Your DigiD is strictly personal. You cannot apply for or use DigiD on another person’s behalf. Never give your login details to anyone else.

Ways to log in

There are several ways of logging in with your DigiD:

Attention: At many organisations, you can no longer log in with just your username and password. Organisations may require a different login method to better protect your data.


If you prefer not to access services online using DigiD, contact the organisation in question to find out more about the alternatives.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
