How do I get a RealMe® login?

You can set up a RealMe® login when you use our online system for the first time. You will need an email address that only you use. This is usually your personal email address. You will be asked for a username and a password. You will also be asked to answer three questions that RealMe® will use to check you are you if you need to change or reset your password in the future.

If you already have a RealMe® login, you won’t need to create a new one. Just enter your RealMe® user name and password, and login when you are ready to start.

What is a basic RealMe® login?

There is a 'basic' RealMe® login account and a more secure RealMe® 'verified' account.

We use the basic RealMe® login, but RealMe® verified may suit you better if you want to do a range of things online with New Zealand government and other online services. Watch this video to learn more about the two types of RealMe® login.
