BankID on Mobile will be replaced by the BankID app, but it won't happen overnight. The service will gradually phase out, andmost users will have access to it for quite some time. The code unit will also remain.

However, all banks have now stopped new BankID on Mobile activations. So, for those who need a new SIM card due to changing their mobile device or switching operators, it's a good idea to download and activate the app before changing the SIM card. This way, you'll have the alternative ready before losing access to BankID on Mobile.

Before activating the app, remember this

Make sure your Bank supports the BankID app

The BankID app is used by nearly 100 banks in Norway. However, if you are a customer of SpareBank 1 or Nordea, you will need to download their respective code apps for BankID. These apps function in the same way as the BankID app.

Download the app

The app can be downloaded from here (requires iOS 15/Android 7 or newer). You can only have the app on one device at a time.

How to activate the app

Once the app is downloaded, it needs to be activated. This means linking your BankID to the app. You can choose to activate it with BankID on mobile or with a code unit, and in some banks, you can also activate it with codes sent via email or SMS.

How to activate faster BankID
