Is xID secure?

Is xID secure?

xID uses several security mechanisms to be sure that the cookie that identifies you has not been copied, moved or stolen from your device. xID is therefore more secure than ordinary ‘remember me’ functions, which use cookies alone. If we don’t recognise you, you must use BankID instead of xID to verify your identity.

Many people use the same password on several different websites so that they don’t have to remember a lot of different passwords. If anyone were to get hold of this password, they can pretend to be you and gain access to many different websites. With xID, this is not an issue. xID is a more secure login alternative than your username and password.
