What is the difference between BankID and BankID on mobile?

Answer:

BankID is by many associated with otp generator. That is, a way to log in by generate a OTP and entering a password. BankID on mobile is an alternative way of achieving exactly the same as BankID, by automatically picking up your mobile phone instead of making a one-time code with otp generator or other. Note that even if you have a BankID, you do not automatically have a BankID on mobile.

To get BankID on mobile, you must first have a BankID from a Norwegian bank, and you must also have a phone and a SIM card that supports BankID on mobile. If you have, you can log in to your online bank and order BankID on mobile.
