Italian Public Digital Identity System records over one billion logins in 2022


More than 6 million identities were issued over the last year, reaching 33.5 million as the total number of SPID identities. 

Italian citizens are increasingly using digital identity to access online services provided by the Public Administration. In 2022, accesses through the Italian Public System for Digital Identity (SPID) exceeded one billion, almost doubling the 570 million recorded in 2021.


SPID is a digital identity system created by the Italian government to simplify and streamline the process of accessing online public services. The system allows users to access multiple services with a single set of login credentials, eliminating the need for different usernames and passwords for each service.


Over the last year, more than 6 million identities were issued, bringing the total number of SPID identities to 33.5 million. The number of public administrations activating online service authentication through SPID is also on the rise. In 2022, the number of PA entities using SPID increased by 3,207 units compared to the previous year, reaching 12,624. Private entities are also increasingly using SPID, with the number of entities growing from 83 to 151.


With the continued expansion of the SPID system and its use by more public and private entities, Italian citizens can expect to enjoy even greater convenience and security when accessing online services in the future.
