30 min

Personal ID numbers: why have Swedes got them, what are they used for, and what is it like to live here without one?

A ten digit personal ID number is how Swedes identify themselves in their contacts with the authorities. But also when they go to the bank, sign up for the gym or the phone company. Should we be worried about how they are used? And what's it like to live in Sweden if you haven't got one?

In today's programme we'll take a closer look at the personal ID number and its role in the Swedish society.
