Freja eID+ becomes the first mobile e-ID to be approved by the Swedish E-identification Board

Regulatory press release

IT security company Verisec announces today that the Swedish E-identification Board has approved Freja eID+ for the quality mark Svensk E-legitimation (Swedish Electronic Identity). This means that for the first time, Sweden will have a mobile-based e-ID with a national coverage that has been reviewed by a government authority.

Freja eID+ is a key to the digital life and offers users a free service in the form of a mobile e-ID and a My Pages control panel used for managing and monitoring digital identities. Freja eID+ offers companies and authorities the opportunity to let customers and citizens log in, sign and communicate securely in the digital world. The service was launched August 15, 2017, and is the first mobile e-ID that has been reviewed by the Swedish E-identification Board.

Svensk E-legitimation is the governments quality mark for e-IDs. The quality mark shows that an e-ID is reviewed and approved by the Swedish E-identification Board. The examination is tried against a national trust framework based on international standards. An e-ID with the quality mark Svensk E-legitimation can be trusted for public and private e-services that require electronic identities. The users too, can feel confident that an e-ID labeled Svensk E-legitimation is a secure identity document. More information about the quality mark can be found at www.elegnamnden.se.

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec, comments:
”Today Verisec has taken a historic step as Freja eID+ becomes the first mobile e-ID approved for the quality mark Svensk E-legitimation. There has been a lot of interest since the launch, and before the approval there were several customers both in the private and public sectors, who signed a contract with our new service. Now that we got the approval, we can intensify work of making Freja eID+ the key to millions of Swedes’ digital life. And with this strong foundation in the domestic market, we can now also start the launch internationally.”
