The European netID Foundation’s netID is a neutral log-in standard that allows Internet users to conveniently log in to various websites using one central account. The netID account lets them easily and securely manage their personal information and consents in one central place. Transparency and data protection are always the main focus. The European netID Foundation was established by Mediengruppe RTL Germany, ProSiebenSat.1, and United Internet. Today, many other partners, including Gruner + Jahr, „Süddeutsche Zeitung“, and the DPD parcel delivery service, use netID.
As an independent body, the European netID Foundation supports internet offers across all industries in implementing the new European data protection legislation, and thus offers a European login alternative to international offers.
