Security tips

If you want to use DigiD securely, please observe the following security rules.

  • Choose a password for your DigiD that is complex or hard to guess
  • Your login credentials are private, so do not share them with others
  • Install effective security on your PC, smartphone or tablet
  • Use a secure internet connection when using DigiD
  • Check the web address of DigiD in your internet browser. The correct address is https://www.digid.nl.

Do you use DigiD? Your DigiD is a kind of digital passport with which you identify yourself. Just like your passport, your DigiD is personal.

Please note: do not give your codes and login credentials to someone else. If you need help with arranging matters online, you should use Authorisation.

Report fake emails / phishing

Have you received a fake email, such as an email asking you to provide your login credentials? Or that lures you to a website other than https://www.digid.nl, where you are then asked to log in with your DigiD?

Please report this to valse-email@digid.nl.

Never give away your login credentials and never log in with your DigiD on a website other than https://www.digid.nl.
