itsme® is officially recognised by the Belgian government
The mobile ID app itsme® has now been officially recognised by the Belgian government. From now on, everyone can use itsme® as a simple, fast way to connect with numerous public services – and to enjoy the highest level of security when doing so. Say goodbye to those unwieldy card-readers: all you need is your mobile phone. Right now, itsme® already has more then 125,000 active users and a growing number of applications.
The itsme® app replaces all of your card-readers, passwords and other tokens with one 5-digit secret personal code. It’s always the same code, wherever and whenever you use it. You can also connect using your digital fingerprint. The itsme® app also enables you to confirm online transactions (such as payments), quickly and securely. Creating an itsme® account is done in just a few steps. Your identity is linked securely to the itsme®app via your bank or using your eID, at the itsme® website.
For all your contacts with the government
From now on you can also use itsme® at CSAM, the access portal for the government’s online services. This means that with itsme®, every Belgian citizen now has a very straightforward way of accessing a growing number of public services, such as Tax-on-Web, MyPension, [email protected], MyMinfin as well as a whole series of local authority services. itsme® does not replace your official eID, but it does provide you with a powerful additional tool that greatly simplifies your online dealings with the authorities.
Through the launch of this new, free means of identification we are making it easier to use the government’s online services.” states Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Digital Agenda, Telecommunications and Postal Service. “Thanks to itsme®, the Belgian citizen can now access numerous public services online, wherever and whenever they want.”
