Username and password

When you apply for a DigiD, you enter a username and password. Remember your username and password. You need these credentials to log in.

Many organisations will no longer allow you to log in with only your username and password. You always need your mobile phone. Therefore, download the DigiD app. The easiest way to log in securely.


Do you want to authorise someone to manage your affairs online? You can authorise someone to use DigiD on your behalf. Please note, your username, password and PIN code are private. Never give this data to another person.

Living abroad

Do you live abroad? And do you have the Dutch nationality or the nationality of another country in the European Economic Area (EEA)? Then you can apply for a DigiD. Did you already have a DigiD before moving abroad? Then you can continue to use your DigiD.

Please note: you need to come to a service desk for this. Not every country has such a service desk. Please take this into account in advance.
