Why do I need a NemID?

NemID is a personal code card you use when you log into online services securely. It can be used for many self-service solutions such as:  

  • Online banking 
  • e-Boks  
  • Register change of address
  • Insurance and many other things 

You will get a new NemID in the mail when you run out of codes.  

NemID is personal

You cannot order NemID on behalf of others. It is illegal to use another person's NemID. That is considered fraud. 

If a person is temporarily or permanently not able to manage his or her own affairs, you can apply for guardianship at Statsforvaltningen (the Regional State Administration). This allows you to sign with your own NemID on behalf on this person.
