Swiss-wide public service login goes into operation in pilot cantons

The authentication service of the Swiss authorities (AGOV) went into operation in two pilot cantons today. The standardised login will facilitate the electronic use of federal, cantonal and communal public services. For instance, the AGOV login can be used in the cantons of Zurich and Appenzell Ausserrhoden for quick and easy access to the online tax return. The planned state electronic ID (e-ID) will also be linked to the AGOV login. AGOV is part of the Digital Public Services Switzerland (DPSS) agenda.
