REGISTRATION

Each of the different registration steps in Freja has its own section below. Check the section that is relevant to you.

Connect your email to Freja

Enter your email address in the app and we’ll send you a confirmation link. You can confirm via your phone or your browser.
If you can’t find the confirmation email, try checking your spam folder.

Create a PIN

Create your own PIN in Freja and be sure to remember it. You will use it to access Freja and approve actions in the app.
You can use biometrics, but they are optional and your PIN will always be there as a backup.

Take a photo of yourself

Because Freja will become your digital document, your photo needs to be appropriate. Make sure that your face is clearly visible, just like for any ID photo.

You can try as many times as you like if you are not happy with your final photo.

How to take a proper photo

Here are some tips for taking a photo for Freja

  • Make sure that the lighting is good
  • Make sure that your face is clearly visible
  • Stand in front of a white background
  • Take off any hats or other headgear (religious clothing such as a hijab is fine)
  • Please take off your sunglasses

Choose your country and ID document

Choose the country of your citizenship i.e. if you have a Swedish passport, choose Sweden.

If you have more than one citizenship/passport and are living and want to use Freja in Sweden, again choose Sweden and the Swedish passport.

IMPORTANT! If you are a Swedish citizen living abroad please register with your Swedish passport.

Prepare for scanning

Instead of adding all of your data manually to the app, use Freja to scan your ID document. Here’s how to prepare:

  1. Read the instructions on the screen carefully
  2. Make sure there is enough light
  3. When you are ready tap ‘Start’

You may need to give Freja access to your camera.

How to scan a passport

  1. Open your passport to the page with your photo and personal information
  2. Place your open passport on a solid surface and hold it open
  3. Rotate your phone horizontally
  4. Fit the shape of your passport into the frame in the app. There are smaller indicators that will help you fit your passport into the frame

When the document is in the right position, scanning will happen automatically. There is no need to press anything.

NFC scanning

Scanning works when your phone and a chip that is located inside your passport communicate. For this to work, your phone and passport must touch physically.

Depending on the type of device this is what we recommend you should do.

If you have an Android:

Make sure to turn NFC on in your phone’s Settings.

Read and follow the instructions in the app carefully.

  1. Put your phone on your closed passport, they need to be physically touching;
  2. Drag your device slowly across the surface of your passport;
  3. Make sure you are not moving your device too quickly;
  4. Be patient until your phone catches the signal from your passport;
  5. When your phone catches the signal, don’t move and let it finish.

If you have an iPhone:

Read and follow the instructions in the app carefully.

  1. Place the top of your device on the middle of your closed passport;
  2. Be patient and wait for your iPhone to catch the signal from your passport;
  3. When your iPhone catches the signal, don’t move and let it finish.

How to perform a liveness check

We also need to perform a liveness check as a security precaution. Here is how to do it properly:

  1. Take the same ID document that you just used
  2. Place it below your chin so that both the ID and your face are visible – there are frames on the screen in the app to guide you
  3. The check takes only a few seconds to complete

This is done on weekdays between 08-22 CET and usually takes several minutes. You will receive a message when your check is complete.
