The first Norwegian customers were issued a BankID in 2004. At that time, the Norwegian banking sector had been working for four years on developing a joint infrastructure. Today 4.3 million Norwegians have a BankID. BankID is used by all the country’s banks, public digital services and an increasing number of enterprises in a wide range of sectors.
The history. So far.
Electronic identification using BankID meets the official requirements that apply to identity verification and binding electronic signature. BankID is used by all the banks in Norway and can be used by all organisations and enterprises that are looking for secure and simple identification online.
Work on developing BankID as a joint infrastructure started in 2000, and the first customers got BankID in 2004. In 2014, BankID Norway AS was established. In 2018 BankID merged with Vipps and BankAxept in order to improve product offering and prepare for competition against global tech firms.
