How to use the DFØ app

As from 1 May, you can register working hours and absence directly on your mobile phone using the DFØ app. You can also easily submit travel and subsistence claim forms or apply for reimbursement of expenses.

Download the ‘DFØ self-service’ app

First login

The first time you log into the app is via the ID portal with secure login:

  • MinID
  • BankID
  • BankID on mobile
  • Buypass ID in mobile

Subsequent login

It is possible to log into the DFØ app with a fingerprint if your mobile phone supports this and you have added fingerprints to your phone.

Go to settings in the DFØ app and select ‘Enable fingerprint authentication’. You will be prompted to log in via the ID portal again and must confirm that you want to use fingerprint login.

  • Contact person
