PHYSICAL IDENTIFICATION

HOW DOES PHYSICAL IDENTIFICATION WORK?

Freja eID is not only a government approved eID for use at the Swedish Tax Agency, 1177 and a number of other online services. Freja is also a physical ID both for manual reading and with QR scanning. The feature is free for both users and stores. 

When the user has registered with an approved ID document and subsequently been approved in our security process, not only is Freja activated as an e-ID for online use, a physical ID is also added to the app. Clicking on Personal eID and then selecting “Identify yourself” opens the ID screen. To open the ID screen, the user must identify with biometrics or PIN. 

HOW IS THE READING DONE?

The ID screen contains a photo of the user, civic registration number, a QR code and a number of security mechanisms. Either you read the CRN manually or the QR code is scanned with the cash register scanner. If the scanner works for scanning driving licenses, it also works for this. The QR code is valid for two minutes, after which the user must click on the expired QR code to create a new one. 

SECURITY CHECK

The ID screen contains a photo of the user, civic registration number, a QR code and a number of security mechanisms. Either you read the CRN manually or the QR code is scanned with the cash register scanner. If the scanner works for scanning driving licenses, it also works for this. The QR code is valid for two minutes, after which the user must click on the expired QR code to create a new one. 

ID CHECK WITH ONLINE VERIFICATION

As an option, you can initiate a lookup to Freja’s database and initiate a transaction that must be confirmed by the user in the Freja app. Then you get full traceability of who has identified themselves and an electronic confirmation of the transaction. This can be used for high value transactions, for example if an expensive consignment is to be picked up.
