Logging in to Posti’s electronic services will change
After the renewal to be carried out during 2020, Posti’s customers can log in to all of Posti’s electronic services with a single user ID. This will make the use of Posti’s services more straightforward. Posti’s business customers will be informed of the progress of the renewal via email.
Previously, the use of Posti’s electronic services required service-specific user IDs. After the renewal to be carried out during 2020, the users of Posti’s services will need only one user ID. The same personal user ID can be used in both consumer and business services. Furthermore, the same ID can be used when handling matters for several companies or organizations. The change that concerns business users will take place in 2020. All business users and company administrators will be informed of the change via email well in advance. In consumer services, the use of the new ID type had already begun when the OmaPosti service was launched.
Smooth services for everyday use
The renewal will make the use of Posti’s electronic services more straightforward as the use of several different user IDs will end. The service users can also change their information conveniently in one place. Making the use of services simple also improves information security.
The renewal will also facilitate Posti’s internal service development and make it possible to develop better electronic services in a fast and cost-effective manner.
