Does your KTH-account have the right assurance level for login to Ladok?
As of July 1st 2023 all Ladok users at KTH must have at least assurance level AL2 on their KTH account in order to be able to login to Ladok. If you haven't already, you need to upgrade your account as soon as possible.
Check your assurance level
You can check the assurance level on your KTH-account here . Observe that the page is in Swedish.
If your result is in red, you have AL1 and need to upgrade your account. If your result is in green, you have AL2 and do not need to upgrade your account.
What does this mean for you?
If you are a Ladok user and your account has the assurance level AL1, you need to visit KTH Entre, alternatively the Service Centre in Södertälje, Kista or IT-support in Flemingsberg. There you need to show your ID to confirm your identity and that way upgrade your account to assurance level AL2. You need to do this as soon as possible, but at the latest July 1st 2023. If you have not confirmed your identity you will not be able to login to Ladok as of July 1st 2023, unless you first upgrade your account to AL2-level. If you, as a teacher or examiner, are not able to log in to Ladok you will not be able to report or certify results.

What is an assurance level?
Simply explained, assurance level is an indication of how secure we are about who holds a Ladok account. At the lowest level (AL1) it may be the person who provided the information themselves, and at the higher ones (AL2) someone has performed an ID check.
Ladok contains a large amount of personal data and exercise of public authority is done in the system. It is important that only authorized personnel has access to the system, that the information in the system is correct and that it cannot be changed by unauthorized persons. To ensure this, the requirements for identification of users need to be high for Ladok users.
As of July 1st 2023, the assurance level AL2 is required on your KTH account in order to log in to Ladok.
Important to know
- The Security Office at KTH has a project during the spring 2023, in which all employees need to change their access card. The change of access card will be done school by school. If you have received the invitation to change your access card and also need to upgrade your KTH account, you can do both at the same time. Read more about the Security Office's project here .
- Since 2015, KTH has had AL2 as the assurance level when creating new account for employees and students. Therefore, many employees and students already have AL2 level on their account. However, a KTH account can lose its AL2 level. This happens if you have forgotten your password and contact the IT-support in order to receive an activation code remotely. If you change the password yourself through KTH's web, or visit KTH Entré to change your password, the AL2 level is not affected.
- Have you missed, or know that you will miss, the deadline for upgrading your account? In this case you will not be able to log in to Ladok after July 1st 2023. As soon as you have upgraded your account, even if you upgrade after July 1st, you will again be able to log in to Ladok.
- From January 1st 2024, all students with Swedish identity numbers will need to have assurance level AL2 on their account to log in to Ladok for students. More information about this will come during the spring.
