Why can't I use my email address as my username?

At the beginning of the registration process, you will be asked to create a username and password for your Digidentity profile. These details will be asked for each time you wish to log into your account.

Your username needs to be at least 6 characters, made up of letters, numbers or dashes. By using a unique username it gives your account more security, as it will not be known to others. For this reason, it is not possible to provide an email address for your username, as these tend to be widely used, for example on job sites and social media.
