Get started with MitID

All NemID users will get MitID throughout 2021 and 2022. Read about how to get MitID here or select the link below, if you for example have ordered and received a MitID code reader and need to activate it.

You will be notified when it is your turn to get MitID

Most NemID users will get MitID from their online- or mobile bank. You will be notified automatically by your bank, when it is your turn. You will be notified as you log on to your online bank. MitID is gradually implemented throughout 2021 and 2022, so we ask for your patience. If you don’t have a Danish or a Grenlandic bank, you need to request your MitID from MitID.dk. During October 2021 all NemID users received a letter via Digital Post from the Danish Digitization Agency and the MitID Partnership that informed you about what to do to get MitID.

Keep NemID until further notice

When you get your MitID, you need to keep your NemID until further notice - so keep your code card or you NemID app. As NemID is phased out, a small number of providers will still allow you to use NemID, This will continue until NemID is finally phased out. Your bank or the Danish Agency for Digitisation will inform you, when NemID is phased out. Until then, you are not required to do anything.
