DNIeRemote App: No Need for a Physical Reader Anymore

The Spanish government, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Interior, the National Police, and the National Currency and Stamp Factory, has developed a mobile application that eliminates the need for a physical reader for the DNIe. This app, named DNIeRemote, is available for free in the application stores of mobile devices, making it easily accessible to the population.

Benefits of the App


The DNIeRemote app provides a number of benefits. Firstly, it is far more convenient and practical for citizens to use the app instead of having to carry a physical reader with them. Additionally, it utilizes NFC (Near Field Communication) technology to transform a mobile device into a reader of the electronic DNI connected to a computer. This allows users to access electronic administration services that require authentication with a digital certificate, as well as digital signatures on documents through the corresponding applications.



The DNIeRemote application is a major step forward in terms of convenience and practicality for Spanish citizens. With the app, it is no longer necessary to buy a physical reader for the DNIe, as users can now access electronic administration services with their mobile devices.
