Goodbye to NemID in online banks

NemID is soon the past in Danish online banks 

Say goodbye to the Nem-ID key card to access your online bank account. The key card is not considered safe enough as a legitimate login method in the Danish banks. 

According to the Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanstilsynet), the NemID key card will not be considered a legitimate method of logging in to your online bank in Denmark after the 30th of June. This is because the key card does not live up to the requirements of online customer authentication.

Not safe enough

The Nem-ID key card is not safe enough to be used for digital authentication. The key card can both be copied and photographed, which is considered unsafe in regard to online security. 

The end of the Nem-ID key card is a step on the way towards a safer and more digital way of verifying yourself when accessing your bank online. By removing the key card option, customers can avoid the risk of their physical codes being stolen.


The final deadline has been postponed several times before, which makes the 30th of June the last date possible to log in with your Nem-ID key card. 31st of October has been set as the last date that Nem-ID as a service will be used. After that, MitID will be the only eID used by Danes to verify themselves online.
