Where did you get this information?

40% of the Swedish population (yes, Sweden is a small country) have a BankID
which they use quite frequently with multiple public sector providers.

But I guess that since they were pushed-off the Web due to the deprecation of
plugins they shouldn't count anymore...  Fortunately the "App" world marches on!!!

Any takers from other countries and communities?
