What will I use instead?
You will need:
■myGovID – a new, easy and secure way to prove who you are online.
■Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM) – allows you to access government online services on behalf of your business.
Together, myGovID and RAM become your new key for our online services and other government online services.

Can I use AUSkey or Manage ABN Connections with other online services?
No. From the end of March 2020, you won’t be able to use AUSkey or Manage ABN Connections (your myGov login when you have an ABN connected to your account) with any government online services. They’re being replaced due to their limitations and changes in technology.
How is myGovID different to myGov?
Your myGovID lets you prove who you are when using government online services. Your myGov account lets you select and link to government online services as an individual from the one place.
In the future, you will use myGovID to log in to more goverment online services, including myGov.
