By integrating with Myinfo API, Singpass users can share their data by providing consent via Singpass and organisations no longer have to deal with manual data management. With data from participating government sources, this allows the provisioning of products instantly, where applicable.

Myinfo allows residents and businesses to benefit from:

  • Reduced repetitive filling of personal information for multiple online transactions;
  • Reduced incidence of mistakes due to human error; and
  • No more need for physical documents as verification to complete transactions.

Signing with Singpass provides convenience, productivity and efficiency - citizens no longer need to be physically present to sign documents and agreements, and businesses can digitalise document verification and filing.

Sign with Singpass uses signing certificates issued by the National Certification Authority. Upon the National Certification Authority’s accreditation, signatures made using the Sign with Singpass will be regarded as secure electronic signatures under Singapore’s Electronic Transactions Act.

Users can consent to this request, and the authorisation will be share with the requesting party, doing away with the need for him to be physically present and without the need to approach two different parties to pass the information/instruction around them.
