• AUSkey compatibility

    We've tested AUSkey against a range of common operating systems and browsers to see which ones work best. Although previous versions of browsers may work, it is recommended that you use the most recent version.

    Below you'll find information about which systems and browsers are compatible with AUSkey.

    You need Administrator rights on your computer to install software. If you are on a network ask your IT department to assist with the installation.

    Note: Microsoft Edge browsers, Chrome Operating System, and most Android and Apple mobile devices are not compatible with AUSkey.

    Using AUSkey on Linux

    There is limited support available using your AUSkey with Linux.

    Many participating government online services are not Linux compatible. While you can install your AUSkey on a Linux platform, access to services may be limited.
