Belgians made massive use of itsme® in 2020, especially to connect to eHealth services.

The Federal Public Service Strategy and Support (BoSa) has announced the renewal of the itsme® accreditation for a period of 3 years. For every 10 Belgians who use the government’s online services, 5 access them with their electronic eID card and 4 with the itsme® digital ID app, a solution launched only 3 years ago.

The year has started well for itsme®: the Belgian Government has just renewed its official authorisation for the itsme® app to be used as a secure authentication tool for the Federal Authentication Service (FAS).

The itsme® app has become a much-appreciated tool for Belgians, which they can use to access government services online. In fact, the use of itsme® has increased constantly over the past three years – and particularly during the year just past – marked as it has been by the pandemic and the viewing of the many government services related to the health of the Belgians.
