Swiss Post and SBB join forces to launch standard login for digital services

Swiss Post and Switzerland’s railway company SBB have joined forces to launch a standard login based on a uniform digital identity. In a statement issued today (16 December), Swiss Post said: “The aim is to enable private individuals, companies and authorities to reduce their countless logins and passwords to just one in order to guarantee simple and secure access to as many online services as possible.”

Swiss Post added: “The new digital identity can be used free of charge. It will initially be available for Swiss Post and SBB services from 2017 and will then be rolled out to online services by other Swiss providers and further applications, such as e-government.”

Swiss Post and SBB have set up a joint venture to provide the digital identity.

The plan is to offer the digital identity to Swiss Post portal customers from 2017 and SwissPass customers from 2018.

Swiss Post and SBB said that they are “open to collaborating with other companies at a later date”.
