Activation of the Finnish Authenticator application

To activate the Finnish Authenticator Identification Service, you must first register a foreigner's identifier (UID) for yourself and then verify your identity using the Finnish Authenticator app. 

In connection with this first identification, you must take a photo of yourself, as well as of your passport or national ID card. The identification service will confirm your identity if the photo you have taken and the information in the ID match. 

After registering and activating the app, you can log into the e-service by using your foreigner's identifier or email address, password and the application PIN.
