How to choose between digital identity providers
To obtainSPID credentials you have to contact one of the digital identity providers authorized by AgID.
Find the provider that allows you to complete the registration process in the easiest way for you: all issued credentials have the same validity.
Depending on your needs, you can choose between different methods of recognition and three different levels of security to access online services.
Activated recognition methods:
- in person, at the offices of the digital identity providers or public administration counters that have activated a desk procedure or at workstations affiliated with one or more managers to verify your identity. Alternatively, you can proceed at the commercial activities of individuals in agreement with identity managers
- via webcam, with an operator made available by the identity provider or with an audio-video selfie, along with the payment of a symbolic sum by bank transfer;
- with Electronic Identity Card (Carta d'Identità Elettronica/CIE) or electronic passport through the apps of digital identity providers available on smartphones or tablets;
- with CIE (Carta d'Identità Elettronica, National Service Card (Carta Nazionale dei Servizi/CNS) or the social security card (Tessera Sanitaria), or with a digital signature with the aid of a reader (such as the smart card) and the relevant pin.
*If you are located abroad (for instance you are an Italian citizen enrolled in AIRE), choose an online method of recognition marked with the EU or world icon.
