The identification process will become simpler as the code app can be used for all services
The use of the printed code card will first end in e-identification gradually during August–September. After this, e-identification will only function with the code app and code calculator. E-identification means a service in which you use your online banking codes for logging in to another service provider's services. For instance, logging in to My Kanta Pages (kanta.fi) and MyTax (vero.fi) services will be renewed on 27 September.
Once the service provider has started to use the new e-identification, users of its online service will be directed to a new e-identification page. In future, you will select the identification method (code app, code calculator or code app in offline mode) from the icons displayed, after which you will write your user ID on the appropriate line.
Login to Netbank with a code card will end at a date to be specified later this year. In future, you will need either the code app or the code calculator for Netbank as well.
Similarly, you will need your online banking codes for card payments more often, as in future online card payments will have to be separately confirmed with online banking codes. After the change, online purchases will be more secure than before.
