In 2010, NemID (Easy ID) took over for the Digital Signature and was a product developed by the same companies who owned Digital Signatures (two private companies). NemID is a common secure login on the Internet, whether you are doing your online banking, finding out information from the public authorities or engaging with one of the businesses that use NemID.
NemID is the same login everywhere. Whether you’re doing your online banking or you need to view your tax file, the way you log in will be exactly the same.
NemID consists of a user ID, a password and a code card containing codes (one-time passwords). When you log on, you first enter your user ID and password and then code from your code card.
NemID took over for Digital Signature and is mandatory for all people and businesses in Denmark.
