If you would like to register with myaccount or get more information about using myaccount as a citizen, please visit http://signin.mygovscot.org
If you are a service provider and would like more information about using myaccount in your organisation, please contact:
myaccount is based around four services:
myaccount sign-in: a secure single sign-in capability that service providers can use for their web-facing applications. It includes tools for service providers to set up services and for service users to manage their accounts and subscriptions.
myaccount data: a data management service that maintains high levels of accuracy for myaccount records and gives service providers tools to improve the quality and accuracy of their own local data.
myaccount verify: a set of tools and business processes to validate and verify individuals and register service users for the myaccount service, and to resolve temporary person and address records.
myaccount notify: a secure notification and messaging service for keeping service providers informed of changes in circumstances for their registered users. It also includes trust brokerage facilities to allow service providers to feed back transactional privilege elevations so that assurance levels can be managed and maintained.
“Using the myaccount service for user provisioning and authentication avoids NHS Scotland having to develop similar solutions itself, substantially reducing our development costs and avoiding duplication across the public sector. By partnering with the myaccount service, our login management and administrative support overheads are significantly reduced. Patients also benefit by having a login that is quick and easy to use and maintain.”
Dr Scott Cunningham, Technical Consultant, My Diabetes My Way
“This exciting development enables us to improve the service we offer to local parents of children attending Aberdeenshire’s schools, helping them pay online using their own laptop, tablet or smartphone in an easy and secure way.”
Nicola Graham, Head of IT, Aberdeenshire Council
“It’s given us the opportunity to use an existing public sector asset, avoiding the need to develop our own solution to authenticate customers. myaccount has enabled us to deliver this cost effectively and to release significant cost savings…”
Michelle Morris Deputy Chief Executive Highland Council
