What is the DigiD app?

Language selection:English

If you have the DigiD app you log in with your telephone or tablet 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.

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.

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.

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.

Which devices are compatible?

The DigiD app is suitable for mobile devices with the following operating systems:

  • Android version 7.0 or higher
  • iOS or iPadOS version 12.0 or higher

Please note: you will need to activate the DigiD app before you use it for the first time.
