Danske ID forms part of your secure digital signature - information that helps the Bank to recognise that it’s you online.

It lets you:

  • log on to eBanking
  • approve payments in eBanking
  • set up and amend standing orders in eBanking
  • approve transfers of £1,000 or more on your Danske Mobile Bank app
  • 'bind' (trust) the device you use for mobile banking.
  • approve card payments online, keeping you even more secure. Find out more.

Using Danske ID to bind your Danske Mobile Bank app to your device

If you are using the Mobile Bank app for the first time, or for the first time on a new device, you will be asked to 'bind' our Mobile Bank app to that device. Simply put, the first time you use the app on a new device, we will ask you for additional security to check that it is you using it.

Once we have that security, we can 'bind' or trust that device when you use it in future.

You can bind the Mobile Bank app to a maximum of 3 devices however you can only use the Danske ID app on one device at a time.

When you're asked to bind our Mobile Bank app to your device you will be directed to use Danske ID to verify it's you.
