ID-card use unavailable in the new Google Chrome

The operating system Windows 7 does not allow the use of ID-cards in the new version of Google Chrome (version 70).

Yesterday, on 16 October, Google Chrome released a new version, which does not support the electronic usage of ID-cards with an ordinary smartcard reader. This version only supports a PIN-pad smart card reader.

The Information System Authority is aware of the situation and has experts working together with representatives of Google and Microsoft to find a possible solution.

For authentication and signing through your browser, we recommend Internet Explorer, Firefox, or mobile ID.
