Digital security firm Gemalto has enabled Belgian mobile ID scheme itsme to enroll 350,000 users and securely process one million transactions per month for both private and public online services – making it one of the most successful mobile ID applications in Europe within one year of launch. As well as bringing greater convenience to consumers, itsme provides merchants, government, and financial institutions with strong, multi-factor authentication that is fully compliant with PSD2, GDPR and is certified for eIDAS.
itsme was developed by Belgian Mobile ID, a consortium of Belgium's leading banks and mobile network operators, in close collaboration with Gemalto. It has been officially recognized by the Belgian government as a way for citizens to connect to numerous online public services, including taxation, pensions and health, as well as online banking and mobile operator services. In its first year the app is already being used widely, with the average user completing six banking transactions and three e-Government transactions each month.
