ID-software: generation of diagnostics and log files

The ID user support helps you resolve issues that arise while using the ID-card and mobile-ID. The easiest way to contact us is through the Contact ID-helpline located on the id.ee website – you will then receive answers to your questions as written instructions.

The more detailed the information the ID user support has on your computer and its devices, the easier the instructions we can send you. Along with describing the issue you have in as much detail as possible, it is worthwhile to attach your computer's diagnostics and/or log files with the help form.

Saving them is easy and you don't need to worry, they don't contain your personal data: only information about the versions of the software and devices you use. Send files previously saved to a folder or desktop on your computer and wait for further instructions.
