myGovID is an easy and secure way to prove who you are online. While your myGov account is your gateway to government online services, myGovID proves who you are – it’s like the 100 point ID check on your phone. At present you cannot use your myGovID to access myGov.
Set-up once, then use your myGovID to unlock selected government online services when you want and where you want. Your myGovID can be used for personal or business matters, or both. More and more government online services are using myGovID.
Set up your myGovID in three easy steps:
1. Download the myGovID app
2. Enter your details – including your full name, date of birth and email address. The email address you use must only belong to you.
3. Add your identity documents – prove who you are with two of the following identity documents. Your details are checked against existing government records.
• Australian driver’s licence
• Australian birth certificate
• Medicare card
• Australian passport
Your personal information won’t be shared without your permission - putting you in control.
myGovID is accredited under the Australian Trusted Digital Identity Framework which strictly control how your identity data is collected, stored and used. myGovID uses encryption technology as well as the security features in your device, such as fingerprint, face or password. This is to protect your identity and help prevent other people accessing your information.
