What is protected identity?
Protected identity may be required if you are subjected to serious threats and it is easy to find out where you live. For example, you may have been threatened by someone in your family or relatives, by a partner, a criminal gang or by someone you testified against in a trial.
Protected identity is actually a collective term for three different types of secrecy safeguards. These are: secrecy marking, address protection and fake personal details. All three types exist to protect people who would be at risk if information on, for example, their address was freely available. Read more at the Swedish Tax Agency’s homepage: www.skatteverket.se.
