What can I use it for?

You can use your myGovID to log in to government online services.

Link your myGovID to a business

Before you can use your myGovID, the principal authority needs to link it to an Australian business number (ABN) in Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM). Once linked, they can set up authorisations for employees and others to act on behalf of the business who will accept the authorisation in RAM.

Once you’ve linked your myGovID to a business, you can access selected government online services using myGovID. More services will be added as they become available.

Relationship Authorisation Manager

An Australian Government authorisation service that allows you to act on behalf of a business online. Managed by the Australian Taxation Office.

Standard

Identity strength

The identity strength you require may differ depending on the government online service you want to access using your myGovID. View your current identity strength on the home page of your myGovID app.

  • Standard –  you’ve set up your myGovID with at least two Australian identity documents.
  • Basic – you’ve set up your myGovID with one or no Australian identity documents (unable to achieve Standard identity strength). To log in to a service that accepts a Basic identity strength, you must be authorised by a principal authority or authorisation administrator in RAM.

You may need to meet additional eligibility requirements to access some government online services when using a Basic myGovID.
