Use of Katso service will be discontinued – users must move to Suomi.fi service

Nov 10, 2020

The use of the Katso service will be discontinued on 31 December 2020. The Katso service will be replaced by Suomi.fi e-Identification and Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. Now is a good time to set up Suomi.fi e-Authorizations, as it will enable the use the services of Kela, the Finnish Tax Administration, the Incomes Register and other authorities also after the Katso service has been discontinued.

In January 2021, it will no longer be possible to use the Katso ID for identification and the roles and authorisations in the Katso service will no longer be valid. The authorisations currently in the Katso service will not be transferred to the new service. They must be created again in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.

In future, personal tokens such as online banking codes, a mobile certificate, an ID card issued by the police or a smart card issued by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency will be required for logging into the e-services. Users of Suomi.fi e-Authorizations will not need any separate identifiers.

Persons with the right to represent foreign companies must replace Katso identification with the Finnish Authenticator application.

Companies can start to use Suomi.fi e-Authorizations on their own initiative

Private individuals as well as companies and organisations for which the signatories can be determined from the Trade Register and the Register of Associations can start to use Suomi.fi e-Authorizations on their own initiative straight away.

Suomi.fi e-Authorizations can be commissioned at suomi.fi/e-authorizations.
