If you have the DigiD app you log in with your telephone instead of with a username and password. This gives your personal data even better protection. You can also use the app if you are located outside the Netherlands.
If you want to log in more securely, use the DigiD app. Logging in with the app requires you to enter a personalised PIN. You can also set it up so that when you log in with DigiD you always do so using a verification code sent to you by SMS. To do this, enable SMS verification in your settings on Mijn DigiD.
Extra security increasingly mandatory
Many organisations no longer allow you to log in with just your DigiD username and password. This means you will have to use DigiD SMS verification or the DigiD app.
Easy to log in
The DigiD app also makes life easier. You no longer have to remember a username and password, just a PIN, which you choose yourself.
