Identify your customers in a fast and secure way in phone calls. It's also possible to use BankID for digital signatures in phone calls.

To protect both your company and your customers, reliable identification is essential, regardless of the channel. BankID for phone calls is available for Mobile BankID as well as for BankID on card and file.

Icon and security check

When an identification or signature is requested in a phone call, an icon with a phone is shown. The customer also needs to answer a question as an extra security check.

By answering the question, the customer confirms if they received the call or initiated it themselves. Below you can see examples of how it looks in Mobile BankID.

Tips for increased safety

It can be a good idea to use descriptive text to increase clarity for the customer. You can, for example, enter the name and title of the employee handling the call. If the company initiates the call, information about which number the call is coming from can contribute to meking the customer feel safer.


My intent: Identify myself in a call with "Company" .

Employee: "Name", "Title"

Calling number: "Number".
