ID check with the app

Have you ordered a SIM card? A short identity check must be carried out before delivery.* With the UPC ID Checker App, you can do this very easily by scanning your identity card (Swiss identity card, Swiss passport, B or C residence permit). Fast, secure and uncomplicated.

UPC Switzerland LLC is obliged by law, according to the federal law on the surveillance of post and telecommunications traffic (BÜPF), to identify by means of a legally valid ID document all customers who  purchase a SIM card, and to store a digital copy of the ID in the customer account. Further information can be found in the customer privacy policy.

Scan ID

Credit card-sized cards should be scanned with your smartphone camera in landscape format, paper card-sized cards in portrait format.

Make sure that the ID document is in the centre of the camera image and well lit (without any reflections through the plastic cover).

First scan the page of your passport with your photo on it, then the page with the other personal details.
