Use your card reader with or without a cable
Using your card reader, you can log on to Online Banking and do most banking transactions. You can choose to log on with or without a cable. Without a cable, you can log on using a computer, tablet or a mobile phone, but you won’t be able to use as many banking services and will need to register security codes more often. If the cable is connected, you can do all types of banking transactions and fewer key strokes will be needed.
If you don’t have a Swedish civic registration number we will provide you with a log-on card, which will allow you to log on to Online Banking and perform your banking transactions.
With the cable in the card reader, your log-on card becomes a BankID.
Your log-on card incorporates a BankID, but only when the computer and the card reader are connected with the cable. You can then use it to log on to other sites which offer log-on with BankID such as the Swedish Tax Agency, the Swedish Social Insurance Administration (Försäkringskassan), the Swedish Pensions Agency and pharmacies. But to be able to use your BankID, you must download the BankID security program and drivers for the card reader to your computer.
