CorpPass is an integrated, self-service login platform for business users transacting on Government e-Services.

Currently, entities access government e-Services using their Singpass or EASY accounts. With CorpPass, entities will have a unique login account to access government e-Services. This would ensure greater data privacy protection for individuals as SingPass is only used for personal e-Service transactions.
