May 15, 2015 12:33 pm

Have you ever wondered what an AUSkey is and how to use it?

An AUSkey is a single key to access government online services. In the future, you may no longer need different user IDs and passwords as AUSkey becomes accepted by more government agencies for their online services.

Although an AUSkey is optional, it simplifies the way you can interact with various government agencies and reduces the number of usernames and passwords you need.

There are two types of AUSkey available, an Administrator or Standard AUSkey.
An Administrator AUSkey gives you access to government online services and sensitive information about the business you represent, it gives you the ability to manage all AUSkeys linked to the business ABN.

More commonly used, a standard AUSkey will give you access to most government online services and allow you to manage your own individual AUSkey.
