The ID card PIN is a five- or six-digit sequence of numbers. The five-digit PIN is the so-called transport PIN. You will receive the transport PIN together with your PUK (unblocking number) in your PIN letter.
Before using the online ID card function for the first time, you must set a new, six-digit PIN. You can set this new PIN using the AUTHADA app and the “Change PIN” function. To do this, enter your five-digit transport PIN from your PIN letter and then assign the new, personal six-digit ID card PIN. In future, you will always need this PIN if you want to use the online ID card function.
