How BankID works
With BankID you can identify yourself at both companies and authorities, log in to e-services and sign contracts.
Here you find answers to the most common questions.
Yes, in the BankID app you can see the history for all events related to your personal identity number.
How to find it:
Open the BankID app.
Select My history.
You will see a list of all events for your personal identity number, including for other BankIDs you may have. Tap on an event to see details.
We can't access amy details of what you have signed, amounts paid or similar, which is why such information can't be displayed. It's only you and the e-service that have access to that type of information.
Your bank can help you block your BankID. You can either contact your bank or log in to their app or internetbank.
When issuing BankID the bank needs to perform an identification by means of original documents, where the person shows a valid Swedish ID document. A Swedish personal identity number is also required. The 1 September 2023, coordination numbers at level "confirmed" was introduced, but unfortunately no physical ID document containing the confirmed coordination number is issued. Therefore, the bank can't perform the identification properly.
We would like to see that persons with confirmed coordination numbers can get a valid Swedish physical ID document displaying this number so that they too can get a BankID.
