myGovID is the Australian Government’s Digital Identity that allows you to prove who you are when accessing government online services. Verify two Australian identity documents such as your driver’s licence and passport to increase your identity strength and unlock government online services when and where you want.
myGovID is different to your myGov account - in future, you’ll be able to use your myGovID to access myGov.
Once set up, you can use your myGovID for personal or business matters, or both.

Set up your myGovID in three easy steps:

1. Download the myGovID app
2. Enter your details – including your full name, date of birth and email address. You should use a personal email address that only you have access to.
3. Add your identity documents – your details are checked against existing government records to verify your identity. Choose two of the following Australian identity documents to add (your name must match in all):
- driver’s licence or learner’s permit
- passport
- citizenship certificate
- ImmiCard
- visa (using your foreign passport)
- birth certificate
- Medicare card – once you verify one of the documents above in the app, you’ll have the option to add your Medicare card.

If you’ve had a change in name, you may be able to use a change of name or marriage certificate to verify this.

You need to be 15 years or older to set up a myGovID. However, age restrictions may also apply to use some government online services. To find out if you’re eligible to use a particular service, check its terms of use.

Your personal information won’t be shared without your permission - putting you in control. myGovID is accredited under the Australian Trusted Digital Identity Framework which strictly controls how your identity data is collected, stored and used. It uses encryption technology as well as the security features in your device, such as fingerprint, face and password. This is to protect your identity and help prevent other people accessing your information.

Your myGovID is unique to you – don’t share it with others.
