Digital Identity

Digital Identity is a safe, secure and convenient way of proving who you are when you want to access services online. Set it up once, and then reuse it whenever you are asked to prove who you are. One of the benefits is that you don’t need to remember passwords. myGovID is the Australian Government’s Digital Identity app.

Once you’ve created your digital identity, you need to link it to an ABN using Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). RAM is an authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of a business online when linked with your Digital Identity, like myGovID.

How you link will depends on your role:

  • principal authority – person responsible for the organisation
  • authorised administrator or user - is someone who acts on behalf of an entity

To learn more about the Australian Government Digital Identity System, refer to the Digital Identity website.
