  • myGovID

    myGovID is the Australian Government's digital identity provider which aims to transform the way Australians interact with Government. Once set-up, it's like having 100 points of ID available on your phone. This will make it faster and easier to prove who you are when accessing government online services.

    Your myGovID is unique to you and can be used for both your personal and business matters. myGovID puts you in control of your personal information.

    Using the security features in your device, such as fingerprint or face, myGovID helps protect your identity and stop fraud.

    You can now download the myGovID app from Apple's App Store (Android coming soon). Then use your myGovID to unlock selected government online services, such as the Business Portal. Future enhancements to myGovID mean that you'll be able to apply for a tax file number (TFN) entirely online.

    We're also trialling a new authorisation solution, called Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). This service allows you to set-up and manage relationships and authorisations across government online services, eg RAM lets you manage who can act online for your business.

    Replacing AUSkey

    Together, myGovID and RAM will replace AUSkey in March 2020. Until that time AUSkey will continue to be supported by us while you move to myGovID and RAM. myGovID and RAM give you a new, simple and secure way to use government online services.

    We're currently trialling myGovID and RAM with businesses. These new digital services will continue to be improved and refined based on users' feedback before becoming available to all Australians.

    Be one of the first to try myGovID and RAM to access the Business Portal, check if you meet the eligibility criteria.
