Help Logging In

An OH|ID is a digital ID issued by the State of Ohio. Your OH|ID provides a single, secure entry point to many of the online tools and applications used by state agencies.

Having an OH|ID means you can log into OHID.Ohio.gov to submit forms, complete reports and access online systems across different state agencies -- all with a single username and password.

There’s no cost and we’ll never share your personal information. Learn more about how we keep your information secure.

Agency Support
