Cloud & System Engineer @Itsme

Belgian Mobile ID, known for its successful app itsme®, is a Belgian scale-up and pioneer in digitalization. In 2017, Belgian Mobile ID united the seven Belgian market leaders from the banking and telecommunications sector: Belfius, BNP Paribas Fortis, KBC, ING and Orange Belgium, Proximus and Telenet. Through joint efforts, they developed itsme®, Belgium's official mobile identity. With this mobile identity app, every Belgian citizen can identify him/herself when logging into digital applications, when approving (payment) transactions and even when signing official documents. Card readers, passwords or cards with tokens are no longer required. itsme® guarantees secure identification through the combination of the itsme® app, the user’s mobile phone and the user’s unique itsme® PIN or biometric identification. itsme® is recognized as a Level of Assurance ‘High’ e-identification mean, and as a ‘qualified’ trust services provider for electronic signatures in the eIDAS regulation, which means that the app complies with the highest security levels. 

The number of users of the identity app itsme continues to rise. In one year, 700,000 itsme accounts were added, a growth of 11%. Today, 7 million Belgians already use the itsme app to identify themselves, confirm transactions and sign documents online, and they do so remarkably often: an average of 47 actions per person per year, or almost 1 per week. Today, itsme is already available in Belgium and 13 other European countries!

Belgian Mobile ID closed partnerships with more than 800 companies, both in public and private sectors. The government is counted as one partner in this total amount, with more than 2.000 platforms. Although itsme® is mainly used for government purposes and in the banking, insurance and telecommunications sector, the importance of the app is increasing in other sectors as well. Examples of other industries are the gaming industry (e.g. Napoleon Games), HR sector, hospitals, mobility services, …
