This is the first step to provide citizens with the option of logging into e-government, banks or companies whose services we use with one login and password.
A new tool is now available on our transaction services: e-Identity, which is a free digital equivalent of an ID document that allows you to deal with selected official and commercial matters onlinehttps://t.co/KSvtvms4iV https://t.co/44fcGfSiGK

What is it actually about? Well, to understand this we must go back to June 2018, when the law was passed, thanks to which it was possible to start work on the implementation of the National Node.
The so-called. "Nodal act" is to provide Citizens – through the National Node – convenient access to public portals and e-services provided by the administration. All with one – not many logins and passwords as before. Access to service portals in accordance with the adopted regulations is to be as simple and fast as possible, but above all secure.
Another important piece of the puzzle is the MojeID project, created by the National Clearing House together with various banks and companies, to identify citizens when dealing with commercial entities in Poland.
At the moment, three banks are using it – PKO Bank Polski, ING Bank Śląski and Bank Pekao as well as the energy and gas supplier PGNiG Obrót Detaliczny, thanks to which we can sign a contract with this supplier without leaving home, confirming our identity by logging into electronic banking.
In this way, we will authorize commercial entities, but for contacts with e-administration also the login details for electronic banking will be sufficient, thanks to the e-Identity tool.
As you can already see on the login page to the government portal GOV.PL, next to logging in with a Trusted Profile or e-proof, we already have the option of logging in directly via the login details to the PKO Bank Polski and Inteligo transaction website. Over time, other banks should appear here, which will directly hook up to the National Node.
