What information do I disclose to a website when I use xID?

When you use xID to log in, your name and date of birth will be disclosed to the website, in addition to a unique number that is assigned to you when you create a BankID. This unique number is the same for BankID and xID. The number may also be disclosed to websites that already have your personal ID number, to enable them to give you access to other information from their systems.

If a website requests more information about you, for example contact information, you can always choose whether and what data to disclose. You never disclose information about yourself without consenting, and you will always be asked before information is disclosed to the website. If you consent, only the website that requests the information will receive it.
