You can prevent unauthorised persons from changing your address using the e-service Block unauthorised change of address. This service allows you to prevent the Tax Agency from approving changes of address unless they are made using electronic identification. This reduces the risk of someone using your personal data for fraud and identity theft.
The e-service Spärra obehörig adressändring (Block unauthorised change of address) can only be used by private individuals. It is not available to companies.
You must be over the age of 18 to use this service.
Use our e-service to prevent unauthorised persons from changing your address. Only available in Swedish.
Do you not have electronic identification?
When you have blocked unauthorised change of address, family members who are registered at the same address as you are still able to change your address if they use electronic identification. Family members include spouses, registered partners, children, parents and cohabitees (if you have children together).
If you have a secure digital mailbox for mail from government agencies, you will receive a message as soon as your address in the population register is changed. This service is free of charge and is a quick and secure way to keep an eye on your address.
In the digital mailbox, you choose whether you want to receive a text message or an email when you have official mail from the Swedish Tax Agency or other authorities.
