Installation of ID-software is very easy! Our website automatically offers you the latest software package compatible with your operating system. Just click on the “download” link and follow the on-screen instructions.
In the case of Windows, you also need to install software on your computer after downloading it. First, open the folder where you saved the ID software file (e.g. “Downloads”), and double click on the file: installation will begin automatically.
Do not worry – all of the necessary instructions will be displayed on the screen, and the whole process is almost automatic. Its duration depends on the speed of your computer, but it should generally take only a few minutes.
Once the software is installed and ready for use, you will see a respective message on the screen.
Please note that in the case of macOS operating system, you need to save and install two separate software packages on your computer:
- basic ID software: you need this for creating digital signatures, use ID-cards, etc. (ID software includes DigiDoc4 and TeRa stamping application, for example).
- Web authentication and signing components*: you need these in order to access, make transactions and create signatures in e-services such as internet banks and the Eesti.ee website via your web browser.
Save both software packages on your computer and double click on the file name to install them. First, you need to install ID software (DigiDoc4 and TeRa), and then the web components.
Software installation is very simple – all necessary instructions are displayed on the screen. Read the information on the screen before moving on to the next step.
*Installation of web authentication and signing components is not mandatory: you only need these if you want to use your ID-card to log in to online services.
In the case of Linux, software installation takes place with the help of an automated script via command line. You can find more information in Ubuntu ID software installation, updating and removal instructions, if necessary.
