Security at your fingertips
Literally. Your digital identity can only be used on your smartphone, with your mobile number and your installed itsme® app. A unique combination which only gives you access to your personal data.
Only you know your code
There is no database with itsme® codes. That means you are the only person in the world who knows the 5-digit code to use your itsme®.
Mobile interactions with itsme® do not take place over the regular Internet. They also use the highly-secured SIM card (Belgian SIM cards only) and the mobile operator networks. That explains the reliability of itsme®, because both your digital ID and your interactions are protected at all times.
Your data are protected
Belgian Mobile ID always encrypts your data, when stored or when communicated to a partner (when you agree to, off course) and protects all parties against attempts of fraud and tampering.
Data are securely stored in the safest Data Center in Belgium we could find and will not leave the EU.
With itsme® it’s easy for you
- to use your digital ID thanks to your mobile phone
- to control the personal data that you share
- to track your itsme® actions and history
- to keep your operations secure
- to allow partners to make sure what you agreed to
How does GDPR and itsme® help you to protect your privacy?
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, a ruling intended to protect the data of the citizens of the European Union. This regulation is effective since 25th May 2018.
GDPR protects any information that can be classified as personal details or that can be used to determine your identity
- Email address
- Social media posts
- Personal medical information
- IP addresses
- Bank details
GDPR gives you back the control of your personal data and itsme® helps you to manage your digital ID.
What Personal Data itsme® deals with?
It is all about you, the data on your eID and your e-mail address Very short, on Biometric Data: the closest itsme® gets to having biometric data on you is your eID-picture. itsme® does not store/keep/use your fingerprints: this is done by your smartphone.
It is all about your smartphone and the itsme®-app. This includes location data (but only the country where you are).
These are all the transactions you have done with itsme® (login, sign up or confirm a transaction). In all transparency: this is for you, and also for the partner, to trace back what you both agreed to (time, date, data and purpose).
When you agreed to become an itsme® user (by the way: Are you already using itsme®?).
