Managing PIN codes

Two personal PIN numbers are set on the ID card during activation, i.e. when the card’s use is initiated. There are separate instructions for activation. This page contains instructions for cases where these personal PINs need to be changed or renewed for some reason. For example:

  • If you have forgotten your current PIN
  • If the PIN is locked, i.e. if you have entered an incorrect PIN five times in a row
  • or if you want to change your PIN for some other reason.

You can select a PIN of your choice for yourself.

  • The basic PIN (PIN1) can be 4-8 digits long.
  • The signature PIN (PIN2) can be 6-8 digits long.

For security reasons, we recommend that the same number sequence is not used for both PIN1 and PIN2.
