If you do not set up your Singpass 2FA by 4 July 2016, you will not be able to perform sensitive government e-transactions from 5 July onwards.
You can still register for 2FA then, but you will need to wait for up to seven working days for a PIN mailer to activate your 2FA before you can perform any sensitive e-transaction. We encourage all users to set up their Singpass 2FA early so that they can continue to perform their government e-transactions safely and without any disruption.

You can get your Singpass immediately if you apply at the Singpass Counter. Alternatively, if you apply online, it will require 4 days for you to get your Singpass through pin mailer.
2-Step Verification, otherwise known as Two Factor Authentication (2FA), is a security process where a user provides two means of identification to log into an account. The first layer of identification is a user ID and password, while the second layer of identification is a unique One-Time Password (OTP) obtained via SMS or OneKey token.
2-step Verification will apply to selected government e-Services, which require a higher level of assurance or involve sensitive information. This security enhancement helps to confirm your identity and better protect your Singpass account.
Singapore Personal Access (or Singpass), launched in March 2003, is a gateway to hundreds of e-services offered by more than 60 government agencies, enabling users to only have to remember one password when connecting and transacting with the Government.
