A working email address is required for the creation of a new digital identity in Siemens ID. You must also provide your family name, your given name and a password which complies with the Siemens ID password policy.

The password must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least 3 three of the following character types: lower case character (a-z), upper case characters (A-Z), numbers (0-9), special characters (e.g.: !#$%^&*).
My account is locked – what happened and how do I fix it?
We lock accounts after the 10th failed login attempts to prevent attackers from guessing the passwords of our users. When an account is locked, an email with a re-activation link is sent to the email address of the user.
I forgot my password. How do I re-set my password?
You can always initiate the password reset process by clicking on ’Don't remember your password?’ either on the login page of a specific Siemens application or alternatively on the login page of the ‘User Self Service Portal’ of Siemens ID: https://uss.login.siemens.com. If you do not reset your password within 5 days of the email reception, you should make the request again.
How can I add a second factor authentication to my Siemens ID account?
You can choose between three distinct options as a second factor authentication for Siemens ID. All of these options can be activated via the User Self Service Portal (https://uss.login.siemens.com). You can either use the One Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS, the Siemens ID mobile application or the Google Authenticator mobile application.
Where can I change name or email address of my existing digital identity in Siemens ID?
Changing names and email address can be done in the User Self Service Portal (please be aware, that changing your email may impact your access to applications which use the email as the user identifies): https://uss.login.siemens.com
Can I use an existing digital identity to access Siemens applications/services and how would we initiate an “Identity Federation”?
In principle yes. Siemens ID allows Identity Federation with Customer Identity Providers as well as with Social Identity Providers but activation and use of these login methods depends on the connected Siemens application. We therefore ask you to please initiate this discussion with your contact person for the specific Siemens application to which you would like to login with an existing identity. Siemens ID supports the protocols “OIDC” (preferred) and SAML for Identity Federation. Setting up an Identity Federation is usually not very complicated (depending on protocols) but will require collaboration between the Siemens ID core team and the respective team of the customers IT department.
