About Telia E-legitimation

Telia E-legitimation Privat

Telia E-Legitimation Privat contains personal information for private persons, and may be used for secure electronic identification and signing documents on the Internet.

The Telia E-Legitimation may be stored on the end-users computer or on an electronic identity card from Telia. Together with a personal security code the end-user can identify itself on the internet.

Telia issues E-legitimation for people 18 years or older. You will need a Swedish national identification number (personnummer) and need to be a registered resident of Sweden. Telia may also issue E-legitimation to persons aged 13 or older, if the eID is placed on the Skatteverkets card, and the person has a personnummer and can prove their identity.

Telia E-legitimation Förlitandetjänst

The Telia E-legitimation Förlitandetjänst service is addressed to governments, businesses and organizations that wish to use or rely on eIDs already issued. The service offers the opportunity to protect information in an e-service so that it only becomes accessible after a user legitimated itself. The user uses an e-service from a Relying Party to identify themselves or sign a transaction with its E-legitimation.

Relying Party identifies itself against Telia Förlitandetjänst, which controls the eID against Telia’s database and sends a response if it is authentic or blocked.
