How to set up a mobile card

Use Your Mobile Card

After you're set up, you can use your mobile card to access many government services.

You can't use a mobile card as: 

  • Photo ID
  • Driver's licence
  • Health card

It's Secure

You must do a one-time security check to verify your identity.

  • It proves you are who you say you are
  • It makes sure no one else can set up a mobile card with your ID
  • It prevents identity theft

In your BC Services Card Account, you can see

  • All mobile devices set up with your mobile card  
  • All your card activity and use

Only your name and a unique identifier is stored on the mobile device.

Password-free login

You don't need to create another password to remember.

Simply unlock your mobile device to use your mobile card using the authentication already set up on your device – like a passcode, PIN, fingerprint, Face ID.

Make sure to protect your device because anyone that can unlock your mobile device could use your mobile card to:

  • See your identity information
  • Access your data
  • Access government services as you

Lost your device?

If you lose your mobile device, or if it's stolen, you can remove the mobile card from that device by either

  1. Logging in to your BC Services Card Account and remove it yourself if you have another way to log in
  2. Going to any Service BC location and they can remove it for you
