SINGAPORE - The SingPass site will be undergoing a revamp to better serve the needs of residents.

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) announced this on Thursday morning on its Facebook page.

From June 6 (Saturday) at 10pm to June 7 at 10am, some e-services using SingPass will be undergoing scheduled maintenance and will not be available during that period.

From July 2 (11.59pm) to July 4 (10 pm), users can access all e-services but no changes to passwords or profile changes for example, can be made to account information.

From July 4 (10pm) to July 5 (10 am), SingPass will be temporarily down for maintenance again.

All Government e-services will be unavailable.

The enhanced SingPass site - which will be ready in July - will include an improved user interface, mobile-friendly features and stronger security capabilities, such as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for e-government transactions, particularly for those involving sensitive data.

This could be enabled by a one-time "second factor" password delivered through short messaging service (SMS) or OneKey token. Find out more here.
