  • myGovID

    myGovID is the Australian Government's digital identity provider and will be available to all Australians soon. 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.

    Soon you will be able to download the myGovID app from Apple's App Store (Android coming soon). Then you can 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 working on a new authorisation solution, called Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). This service will allow 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 switch 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 a limited number of users. These new digital services will continue to be improved and refined based on users' feedback before becoming available to all Australians.
