# App login

# Use case

You are looking for a secure way for your end-users to log in to your mobile app, but without the need for username and passwords. You want to achieve this whilst still offering a positive and seamless user experience for your end-users.

# How it works

Meet Jane, one of your active end-users who has activated MobileID in your mobile app. Jane needs to log in to your mobile app so that she can access your online services.

  1. To do this, Jane clicks on your app icon on the mobile device.
  2. Your app opens and Jane authenticates herself using biometrics.


Jane has now securely authenticated herself with two-factor authentication using your mobile app.

# Implementation


This flow assumes that you are using MobileID and that the end-user has an active MobileID user and device.

The following flow is a suggestion on how to implement MobileID for app login:

  1. The end-user clicks on your app icon on their device.
  2. The mobile app triggers a MobileID authentication request for the device.
  3. The end-user authenticates using biometrics or a PIN code.
  4. MobileID verifies the authentication and sends a response to your server and app; confirming the authentication.
  5. Your mobile app grants the end-user access to their account.

Using MobileID for app login is a straightforward and effective way to provide your end-users with a secure and seamless login experience.
