Digitally signing your loan contract is now possible

 

Arrange your financial affairs quickly and securely. Those who have something to do with the Tax Authorities use their DigiD for this. For most Dutch people, that has become a completely established method of online identification. However, those who want to arrange financial matters online that have nothing to do with a government institution generally have different user names and passwords. Consider, for example, logging in to your account at your favorite web store. Fortunately, that hassle with different passwords will soon be a thing of the past. More and more companies use iDIN (a kind of DigiD, but for commercial institutions). Loan provider Deu is now also tackling: thanks to the possibilities that iDIN offers, responding to or confirming a loan offer is now extremely easy.

Those who want to take out a loan naturally look at various points. Among other things, the interest rate, the term and whether or not there is the possibility of early repayment can be decisive factors in the choice of a particular loan provider. The ease of use when applying for and taking out a loan can also be a consideration. At that point, the loan provider Deu was, until recently, a party that was somewhat old-fashioned. Consumers who requested a quote from Deu and subsequently wanted to sign the contract for the loan had to perform quite a few actions. Moreover, taking out such a loan was a rather time-consuming activity. Check it out: a quote had to be requested. The quote was then sent by Deu by mail (sometimes fortunately by e-mail). After a consumer had checked the quotation and approved it, it had to be signed manually and either scanned or returned by post. In short, before the amount to be borrowed was actually in the account, the necessary time had already passed. This old way of communicating is now a thing of the past at Deu. You can now digitally sign your offer with this loan provider using iDIN.

How safe is it?

How safe is it?

Because iDIN is still relatively unknown to many consumers, it naturally means that switching is necessary. A new (digital) way of communicating, and that with regard to your money matters … how secure is that, and what about privacy? As a customer who wants to take out a loan with Deu, you don’t have to worry about that. iDIN is just as safe in these areas as, for example, iDEAL. Data is always sent encrypted. Not only the iDIN developer states this, the Consumers’ Association has also done a test and this independent organization came to the same conclusion. In short, borrowing money from Deu has become a lot more user-friendly for consumers since the introduction of iDIN.
