The BankID app will soon be available in Huawei AppGallery. BankID has an important position in the Swedish society by enabling electronic identification for safe and secure use of services and payments over the Internet. It is the users who choose which mobile phones they want to use and we provide the BankID app on the market-leading mobile platforms, which means that most of Sweden's population has the opportunity to use BankID. Our mission is to provide a secure and accessible e-identification. No sensitive information, such as personal data or the like, is stored in Huawei's or in any of the other mobile supplier´s infrastructures.
The BankID service now supports QR codes. This is the most recent step for further enhancement of the security in Mobile BankID. By scanning a QR code with the BankID app, the user can confirm the proximity between e.g. a computer and a mobile phone.
In practice this means that the security is increased when authenticating or signing with a Mobile BankID for a service presented on a different channel e.g. a PC.
On 20 June 2018, Finansiell ID-Teknik BID AB with BankID joined the "Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering" of the Swedish E-identification Board. This means that the provision of e-identification through BankID now is secured in the public sector's digital services. Authorities and municipalities can now easily submit a notification of interest and join the "Valfrihetssystem 2018 E-legitimering", thus gaining access to BankID.
