What's new in authentication

The Mobile key enables you to login to, and confirm payments and transactions, on OP-mobile and soon on the op.fi service too. Its use will also be extended to other services, such as MyTax and Kela, and to online payment confirmation. 

Mobile key is an identification method, just like the key code list. It is always with you on your phone or tablet, and it can’t be copied. 

Changes to login view

The op.fi login view will change after the inclusion of Mobile key. 

You can still authenticate yourself using the key code list

You can still select the key code list as the means of identification at op.fi. In this case, you will log in and confirm payments and transactions by using your username, password, key code list and, if necessary, an SMS confirmation.

This means that when you use a key code list, you need a device that can receive SMSes. Receiving SMSes is free of charge for you. The bank’s SMSes requesting further confirmation will always be sent from number +358 40 711 8180, and they are signed by OP.

Check your further confirmation phone number

To use the Mobile key and receive confirmation messages, your mobile number for further confirmations must be up to date. The further confirmation number is your phone number linked to your username. Please make sure your phone number for further confirmation is correct.

How to check your details at op.fi:

Private customers: Oma profiili (My profile) > Omat tietoni (My details)

Corporate customers: Settings > Confirmation and devices > Managing further confirmation number

If you don’t have a phone number for further confirmation yet, you can add it when logged in at op.fi or by visiting a bank branch. If the phone number for further confirmation is incorrect in your details, please contact our telephone service or a bank branch.

If you don’t have a device that can receive SMSes, please contact your OP cooperative bank to agree on the best way to do your transactions.

New services for managing your accounts and making payments

As a result of changes in the Payment Services Act, you can view your account information and make payments on other than your bank’s services, too.

Legislative amendments bring about new requirements for the identification and confirmation tools used when account and card information is viewed and payments initiated. Their purpose is to guarantee the safety of the customer, customer details and payments. Legislation requires so-called strong identification basically every time account information and payment services are used.

The changes originate in regulation that is binding on banks. The amendment of the Payment Services Act on the basis of the PSD2 directive aims to ensure the safety of banking transactions, and the key code list alone does not meet the requirements of the Act. The Payment Services Act concerns all banks that operate in Finland.
