Do not give out your login details on Facebook

People who falsely claim to come from the Swedish Migration Agency have contacted applicants through Facebook on several occasions. The fraudsters have created their own account where they say that they work at the Swedish Migration Agency. Their aim is to get applicants’ login information for the BankID electronic identification solution.

The Swedish Migration Agency never contacts applicants to ask for their personal details via Facebook. The Swedish Migration Agency never asks applicants for their personal login information over the phone or via Facebook either.

If you have been a victim of attempted fraud, please report the incident to the police. Please also ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of the BankID app.
