ABOUT FREJA eID
WHAT IS FREJA eID?
Freja eID is a mobile electronic identity that allows you to identify yourself in many different ways. You can identify yourself to online services in order to use or access them (typical login/2FA). However, we believe that an e-ID is much more than that. With Freja eID you can identify yourself and others in the real world with a versatile feature of the Freja eID app that combines real-world usage, QR codes, identity sharing and more.
Why should I use Freja eID?
Generally, an e-ID is understood as something that you use to log in to an online service or give approval. We see e-IDs as much more than that.
So while Freja eID does let you access and approve actions for a growing number of online services, you also get:
- Secure identity sharing via P2P – identify yourself and identify others with Freja eID
- Protect yourself from ID theft – Freja eID warns you when there is an unauthorised change in your address
- Seamless transition – start using Freja eID on a new device immediately
- Don’t risk your personnummer – just use a QR code instead, a process which is just 1 click on mobile
That’s not all. Development on Freja eID is constant with old features being refined and new features being added to tackle the problems of the future.
