How to log on and authenticate with MitID chip

MitID chip is for you who have to approve with MitID many times a day.

When you log on or approve with your MitID chip (eg on skat.dk or borger.dk), you must do the following:

  1. Enter your user ID. Enter your password if prompted.
  2. Connect your MitID chip to your computer, tablet or smartphone and authenticate.

You authenticate in one of the following ways, depending on the device you are sitting with:

  • USB cable:
    Connect the MitID chip to your computer's USB port with the supplied cord. Press the button on your MitID chip.
  • Bluetooth:
    Connect (pair) your MitID chip to your computer, tablet or smartphone. Press the button on your MitID chip.
  • Contactless:
    MitID chip has a built-in NFC chip similar to contactless payment cards. Hold your MitID chip close to your device to authenticate. It requires that your computer, tablet or smartphone also has a built-in NFC chip.
    You do not have to press the button on your MitID chip to authenticate with the contactless function.

Note: When you connect your MitID chip to your device, a message will appear from your operating system or browser asking for permission to authenticate with the MitID chip. You must give permission if you want to use the MitID chip.

Practical advice:

  • IOS only supports NFC, when connecting to the MitID chip - not Bluetooth. Therefore, all IOS users must use NFC to connect the MitID chip with their IOS unit.
  • As you connect the MitID chip with your IOS unit, please do not activate the chip's button. If you activate the chip's button, you will deactivate the NFC functionality.
  • As you connect the MitID chip with the IOS unit, it is best to place the chip on the upper halft of the units backside close to the unit. Should you have a cover on your IOS unit, please remove it temporaily, as it can block the connection.
  • For Bluetooth to work with Windows/Android, please remember to configure the connection prior to the activation/authentification.
