Danske ID creates secure digital signatures each time you use it so it will be more secure than your Access ID security card

It’s also handier and easier to use. Once activated you’ll no longer need to go looking for your card down the back of the sofa or at the bottom of your purse. You’ll just need to reach for your phone.

But remember to hold on to your security card for a while longer as you’ll still need it for some things.

Getting started with Danske ID

Before you start, you’ll need to be registered for eBanking
