Login using DigiD
When you encounter a website that uses DigiD always make sure you are visiting a genuine site or service. Beware of phishing attempts and spoof sites that try to steal your information. There are three methods to log in:
- Username and password
- Username and password with additional text message (SMS) verification
- Using the official DigiD app
Although two-factor authorization is safer, make sure you are able to receive text messages on your phone. For the DigiD app you will need a smartphone with the app installed. There is a timeout on the login process, if you wait too long you will need to logon again.
