SwissID login with Mobile ID

SwissID users can now use Mobile ID as a second factor for more secure online portals access. The publisher of SwissID, SwissSign Group AG, has partnered with Swisscom for this purpose.

Data protection and data security are top priorities at SwissID. SwissID users can add a security stage using Mobile ID two-factor authentication alongside the username and password. Two-factor authentication (2FA) has been established in online banking for many years, but it is now becoming increasingly crucial for login processes in other sectors. SwissID users are now able to use the proven Mobile ID two-factor solution.

The Mobile ID function can be activated in the personal SwissID online customer portal in just a few steps and is free of charge. SwissID has thereby already paved the way for use in areas that require an exceptionally high level of security or are highly regulated.

“We are delighted to offer our SwissID users Mobile ID as an additional technically refined two-factor authentication solution. All SwissID users can now add Mobile ID as an option to their existing SwissID login,” explained Markus Naef, CEO of the SwissSign Group.
