3 reasons why eID is safer than a regular login

Implementing electronic identities (eIDs) in your site or app as a method of login is important in order to create a secure authentication experience for your users.

Why an eID login is safer than a regular login

Are you considering integrating eIDs like MitID or Norwegian BankID in your application or on your website? We are cheering for you to do so, and here is why it is a good idea.

1. It's harder to steal an eID 

It is harder to steal and copy a person’s eIDs than a regular login with email and password, as there is the extra safety layer on approving your login with two-factor authentication.

2. Safer than usernames and passwords

Usernames and passwords can usually be hacked in less than a minute. If you are dealing with sensitive information, eIDs will be a more secure option since you are not gambling with security due to weak passwords.

3. Secure across multiple accounts

Usernames are often reused emails, and if one account is hacked, you will be vulnerable on all your accounts.

Using an eID as a login in your business adds an extra layer of security, simply because it is at least a two-factor authentication and not a reused email and password combination. 

How do I get started?

With our eID solution, it is easy to get started. Sign up and start developing and testing your application. The next step is to register your application's URL and choose the eIDs of your interest.

Then you are ready to configure your application. Install the OpenID Connect package on your platform and configure it to Criipto Verify as the identity provider.
You are now ready for testing; no registration with eID providers is required.
