The use of the Katso service will be discontinued on 31 December 2020. The Katso service will be replaced by Suomi.fi e-Identification and Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. Now is a good time to set up Suomi.fi e-Authorizations, as it will enable the use the services of Kela, the Finnish Tax Administration, the Incomes Register and other authorities also after the Katso service has been discontinued.
In January 2021, it will no longer be possible to use the Katso ID for identification and the roles and authorisations in the Katso service will no longer be valid. The authorisations currently in the Katso service will not be transferred to the new service. They must be created again in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
