Authentication Options

You have 2 options for authenticating your ID in Elic:

Login with password and SMS

For this option, with each login you will be sent an SMS with a code (TAN) to your mobile phone. You must then enter this code in Elic. This ensures that any third party who has discovered your username and password will be unable to login to Elic.

Login with SuisseID

In Switzerland the SuisseID is the first standardised product for providing a secure electronic ID. Transactions can be concluded between private individual and company (P2B), between companies (B2B) as well as between the citizen and the Swiss administration directly via the Internet. To do this, insert the SuisseID into your card reader or a spare USB port (depending upon the version used) and then when logging in to Elic click on the SuisseID button. You will be asked for your SuisseID PIN. As soon as you have entered this you can use Elic.

Please note that you must order the SuisseID separately prior to registering!
