The cell phone signature

The cell phone signature is your personal signature with which you can clearly identify yourself on the Internet. The cell phone signature enables you to sign documents or invoices legally. It is equivalent to a handwritten signature and is therefore your digital ID on the Internet.

You can activate the cell phone signature directly in the Service Unit Citizen service and lost property service...

Which requirements do I need?

  • Main residence in Innsbruck
  • Activated cell phone
  • Official photo ID

For security reasons, you must now present a second document (e-card, ATM card, credit card, student ID, professional ID, ÖBB climate ticket, etc.) in addition to your official photo ID when establishing your identity.

The cell phone signature may only be activated if the data of both documents presented match.
