The extension acts as a bridge between a website and the local computer, using the web browser's native messaging interface. The extension requires that Net iD Client is installed on the computer and that the native messaging interface is enabled.

The functionality provided depends on the configured access level in Net iD Client. The lowest access level allows the creation of digital signatures, and with maximum access level is it possible to administrate the security token. See the Net iD Client documentation for more information.

Adding the functionality to a website requires communication between the website and the extension. The recommended solution is to use the javascript file provided with Net iD Client. It delivers the same interface for different communication methods, for example, this extension, other web browser extensions, or older interfaces like ActiveX and NPAPI. See the Net iD Client documentation for more information.

This extension is only applicable to users with Net iD Client installed and this extension enabled. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your support organization or visit us at
Risk impact

Net iD Client requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Net iD Client if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Net iD Client is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
