Verisec welcomes students, teachers and parents to use Freja eID for login to the Vklass learning platform

Press release


IT security company Verisec, the innovators of the mobile e-identification service Freja eID, concludes an agreement with Vklass – Sweden’s most widely used learning platform. Vklass wants to offer its users a fast and secure way into the service via e-ID. Instead of having to take the way through different municipalities login services, adding many frustrating clicks to the user.

Vklass is a learning platform for students, teachers, parents and school management. The service gives students access to communication with their teachers and schoolmates online, and the school can handle the administrative processes that the school does. With 4 million logins per month, Vklass is one of the most visited sites in Sweden with its 80 million pageviews per month. Freja eID consists of a mobile app used for login and signing to all the services associated with the user’s e-ID. With Freja eID, the My Pages web portal allows the user to control how the e-ID can be used, here the user also has access to his or her own user history. Freja eID is completely free of charge for the user.

As Vklass enables Freja eID login, Vklass users can finally forget about the password and instead enter fingerprint or PIN to log in with a secure and easy-to-use mobile app. Password login was created at a time when the internet didn’t exist and with today’s technology, this is the biggest weakness of unlawfully entering a system. Freja eID provides two-factor authentication that eliminates the risk of passwords. By offering Freja eID to its approximately 700,000 users, Vklass in turn has the option of eliminating the problem of forgotten passwords and administrative costs for password reset.

Pedro Hansson, CEO DevCode Vklass:
“One of the most common feedback we receive from custodians is that it takes too long to log in when they have to go through the municipality’s login service. Therefore, we want to make it easier for our users to log in with Freja eID directly on Vklass and minimize the number of clicks. After testing how smooth Freja eID is, the choice was obviously to offer it directly in Vklass. Freja eID also has no age limit, which means we can also offer municipalities to use it for students.”

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec comments:
“The fact that Sweden’s most used learning platform offers its users to log in with Freja eID goes to show that society’s digital transformation takes place at all levels. With this, Vklass has taken a decisive first step towards replacing the tedious, insecure and uneconomical password logon with an easy-to-use, secure and cost-effective eID focusing on all aspects of the user experience.”
