Which third party identities are supported by Hello for authentication?

Hello currently supports the following third party identities for authentication:  

  • Bank ID token 
  • Bank ID mobile 
  • BuyPass (software token mobile phone App available for Android and iOS) 
  • Single-Sign-On (for user organizations federated with hello)
