19. I suppose Sweden is different than the US. Here we have so many apps you HAVE to use to

access vital things (like BankID all banking info, medical info, government websites, most e-commerce, etc).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BankID

Bank-id (trademark BankID) is by far the largest electronic identification system in Sweden, with a usage rate of 94% among smartphone users, and is administered by Finansiell ID-Teknik BID AB that is owned by several Swedish and Scandinavian banks. In March 2018 Bank-id had about 6.5 million active users and was supported by 600 web services (my add- this is MUCH higher now). Only individuals with a Swedish personal identity number can acquire Bank-id.


BankID, since last year, is no longer supported on desktop/laptop by some banks (ours is one of those), only on mobile app (Mobilt bank-id).

Around 96 to 97% of Sweden's population (16+ years), internet users, and smart mobile users now have BankID. Older and disabled people have legal proxies that use it for them. It is extremely secure (vastly more secure than most all of my US-based web accounts), and each device needs a separate, discrete, verified app installed.
