Smart-ID has already 300 000 users in Latvia

300 000 people have already started using SK ID Solutions’ electronic identity solution Smart-ID in Latvia. This makes Smart-ID the fastest growing e-identity solution in the region. There are altogether 650 000 Smart-ID users in the Baltics who make nearly 10 million transactions a month.

In the Baltics, the Smart-ID user count has grown the fastest in Latvia where, until now, there was no convenient and secure mobile authentication solution. Smart-ID, which was launched in February 2017, gained the trust of 15 000 Latvians within the first month of its release and by June 2017, ten times as many Latvian inhabitants had become users of Smart-ID.

“Smart-ID is the fastest growing eID solution in Baltics and it’s great to see that it’s especially popular in Latvia. In less than a year Smart-ID has gained 650 000 users in the Baltics, out of which more than 300 000 are in Latvia, 200 000 in Lithuania and 150 000 in Estonia. Such a fast and persistent growth speaks clearly that Latvians need a secure mobile authentication solution which they can use to access e-services. It shows that people are open towards new convenient and trustworthy solutions,” said Liisa Lukin, the Business Development Manager of Smart-ID Services at SK ID Solutions.

Arnis Škapars, board member of SEB Latvia commented: “In less than nine months Smart-ID became the primary means of authentication for our clients, and at this point we already have more Smart-ID users than users of other authentication solutions – code card or code calculator. This is an excellent example of the speed in which new technologies are entering our lives, and clients are quick to adapt solutions which make their lives easier.”

The innovative and convenient Smart-ID works on a simple principle: the user downloads the Smart-ID app from Google Play or App Store to his smart device and identifies himself electronically by using an ID-card or bank link or by visiting his local SEB Bank or Swedbank branch office. As with the ID-card, Smart-ID also requires the use of PIN1 and PIN2 codes which the user will create within the same app.
