With the new national identity card function

For online applications, you can identify yourself quickly, easily and securely with your German national identity card.

All you need is a national identity card with an activated online ID function, your six-digit PIN and a card reader or a modern smartphone with the free AusweisApp2 app.

Secure and trusted

When requesting a service online, secure identification with personal information such as your name, address and date of birth is usually essential. Depending on the government service you want to use, your identification data either are not checked, or are checked and require an assurance level of normal, substantial or high.

Please use the arrow keys (left/right) to jump to the previous/next slide. Use the tab key to jump to elements (like links) within the active slide. Note for screen readers: Press Tab once to interrupt the carousel.

  1. No identification

    When applying online for services labelled “no identification”, your identity is not checked.

  2. Normal assurance

    When applying online for services labelled “normal”, you sign in using your username and password. This reduces the risk of identity fraud.

  3. Substantial assurance

    When applying online for services labelled “substantial”, you can log in using your ELSTER certificate (the online identification certificate used for your electronic tax return), for example. This considerably reduces the risk of identity fraud.

  4. High assurance

    When applying online for services that require the highest assurance level, you use your online ID card function. This is intended to prevent identity fraud.
