Here you'll find a list of mobile devices, which can be used for the online identification function.

Supportet Android devices

NFC and Extended Length
The basic requirement for using a smartphone is that the device used supports NFC. It is also necessary for the communication that "Extended Length" is supported by both the NFC chip and the firmware of the respective device manufacturer.

Unfortunately, not all mobile devices have these requirements, so we have an overview of supported devices for you.

Automatic NFC check
There is an automatic check in AusweisApp2 which tells you whether your device has the necessary NFC interface or not. If the test is negative, a Bluetooth card reader or an Android smartphones as card reader (Release date: 20/12/2017) can be used.

Unfortunately, not all mobile devices have these prequesites, so we will povide you with a list of supported devices.

Test and share your results
The list is updated daily. Your feedback is also included. It is possible that devices, initially declared as „non-functioning“, will work after a firmware update. Please do not hesitate to contact us, if your device works. Please inform us about the exact device information (model and firmeware version). You can also do this conveniently using the „Report an error“ feature in the app.

Alternative to NFC: Bluetooth card reader
The cyberJack wave from manufacturer Reiner SCT is a card reader suitable for the online identification function which supports Bluetooth and can therefore be used with mobile devices.

Note: The overview list is based on our own test results and user feedback. It is not exhaustive. Due to different operating systems / firmware or changes made by hand, there may be deviations from this list. The overview provided by us does not guarantee the functionality of a smartphone / tablet. It serves as a reference and orientation guide for smartphone / tablet owners. The overview list is expressly not a recommendation to buy. In principle, the device used must meet the above-mentioned requirements in order to be able to transfer the data of your identity card / electronic residence permit directly via the NFC interface of the device used.
