  • If the PIN is entered incorrectly three times in a row, the account will be blocked for three hours.
  • If the PIN is again entered incorrectly three more times in a row after the three hour block expires, the account will be blocked for 24 hours.

Questions specific to SEB

You can use a single Smart-ID account to connect to and confirm transactions in other banks as well. There might be different additional steps or actions for different banks, but in general the respective bank will automatically send a confirmation prompt to your Smart-ID when you are logging in or making transactions.

Yes, if you use Smart-ID to access your private internet bank, you can also connect to the company’s internet bank. Just make sure that you first connect to your private internet bank after setting up the Smart-ID.

If you don’t use Smart-ID for authentication in other banks, you can simply delete the Smart-ID account and uninstall the app from your phone or tablet. Just make sure that you have other authentication tools available so you can still access the internet bank and confirm transactions, for example a code calculator or M-signature.
