Digital processes in public administration save time and money. Austria recognised their potential early on and today its public administration system is one of the most advanced in the world. The E-Government Act of 2004 laid the foundations for Austria's digital transformation. The main emphasis is on providing a good service for citizens. E-services are intended to help, for example, to bring more efficiency into our daily lives. With your ID Austria account, you can identify yourself digitally and securely anywhere in Austria. The eAusweise (eID) app enables you to carry your documents with you securely on your smartphone. Digital driving licences, proof of age and the vehicle registration certificate are the first service to be available on the new digital ID platform, eAusweise.

Electronic ID card for the authority

With eBild, a modern and secure system was created to transmit ID photos electronically, easily and securely to the relevant authorities. The photographer transmits the passport photo to the eBild system and receives an image identification code. This can also be handed out or sent directly to the mobile phone via SMS.
The authorities gain access to the passport photo in the eBild system using the image identification code. The quality-reducing and time-consuming step of cutting out and re-scanning the photo in the authority is no longer necessary.

data protection
No personal data is stored in the eBild system. Any meta data will also be removed. All communication with the eBild system takes place via encrypted connections on servers operated in Austria.
