Our history



2012

Incorporation of our innovation department

The foundation stone for youniqx Identity AG was laid in 2012 with the creation of our innovation department at the Austrian State Printing Office. And all with a clear goal in mind: Setting the course for tomorrow’s digital identity!

2012–2014

Conceptual design of an eID solution on the smartphone

What does it take to make your identity digital on a smartphone? We begin gathering our ideas and conceptualising our eID solution.

2015

Start of development work on MIA with initially three developers

Not just bland theory! We begin developing our eID app “MIA” (My Identity App) in 2015.

2015

Presentation of MIA involving representatives from government, the authorities and business

In the same year, we present MIA to representatives of the then government and Federal Minister Mikl-Leitner, as well as the relevant authorities and key stakeholders from the wider economy.

2017

First pilot launch with the city of Graz

We launch our first pilot phase with the city of Graz. With our solution, the annual travel ticket for around 200 people transitions to the digital sphere and the smartphone, where it functions as both a ticket and proof of identity as one.

2017

New product MICK

Identification via video call, no matter where you are? Doesn’t just sound great, it really is! Our app “MICK” (My Identity Check) launches in 2017!

2017

Founding of youniqx with approx. 20 employees.

In 2017, we found youniqx Identity AG as a modern subsidiary start-up of the holding company “Österreichische Staatsdruckerei Holding”. Our approach to grappling with all challenges to do with digital identity: We never lag behind, but lead the way!

2018

Start chainlock

Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly popular. But how to store crypto values securely and conveniently? We are working hard to develop chainlock, an unhackable offline cold wallet to store digital assets securely!

2019

Starting point for the implementation of eID in Liechtenstein with approx. 30 employees.

Since 2020, all citizens of Liechtenstein are able to use the electronic ID “eID.li” developed by us. With eID.li, they can authenticate themselves quickly on the Internet and use many public services completely digital.

What we are currently working on




Cryptowallet chainlock

The chainlock card is the ideal solution for anyone wanting to store their cryptocurrencies and digital assets in a highly secure way. No matter whether it’s a small cryptocurrency gift for your own family or a highly secure investment involving large amounts from an investment portfolio.

MIA - My Identity App

MIA (“My Identity App”) introduces personal identity documents to your smartphone in digital form. MIA combines the security of physical identity documents with the ease of use that an app has to offer, and gives users full control over their personal data. Users alone decide who can view their identity documents. Personal documents can be shared at the touch of a button: either with the apps on your own smartphone, with other MIA users, with companies or with authorities during an official appointment.
More information on MIA
You searched for MIA in the Play & App Store and found nothing?

MIA is our platform that offers several different features for government clients. When government clients decide to introduce a digital ID for their citizens with MIA, we work out a specifically tailored MIA solution according to our clients’ own needs. The package also includes a new name for the app. For example, MIA 2020 has been launched in the Principality of Liechtenstein under the name “eID.li” and helps the citizens of Liechtenstein to use public services fully digital.
