Find out about Digital Identity and using it with your myGov account.

What is a Digital Identity?

A Digital Identity is a secure and easy way to prove who you are online. Find more information about Digital Identity on the Digital Identity website.


myGovID is the Australian Government's Digital Identity service provider.

myGovID is different to myGov, and it is not:

  • a myGov account
  • automatically connected to myGov.

If you connect your myGovID Digital Identity to your myGov account, you can use it to sign in to your account.

If you don’t have a myGovID Digital Identity, you can set up one with myGovID. After you set it up, connect it to your myGov account.

Set up myGovID

Set up your myGovID in 3 easy steps.

  1. Download the myGovID app.
  2. Enter your details.
  3. Verify at least 2 Australian identity documents to achieve a Standard identity strength.

Find out more on how to set up your myGovID and identity strength on the myGovID website.
