The Pocketmate USB-C is a compact version of the ACR39U card reader, specifically designed to work with smartphones & tablets. Thanks to its design it's easy to open and is plugged directly into the USB-C port of your Android or Windows device, similar to a standard USB stick. This means it takes up very little space and can easily be carried around - on a keyring, for instance.

Drivers & apps

The eID Software

In order to use our card readers, you must first install 2 different things

  1. the eID software (Middleware) from the Belgian government
  2. the drivers for the card reader (download below)

Note: These are not applications, therefore you will not see any shortcuts. However, when the eID software and drivers are properly installed, you will be able to use your card reader on dedicated applications and websites.


The drivers











* Normally the drivers are automatically installed by Windows Update.


Mobile API / SDK

The eID Quickinstall (middleware) of the Belgian government only supports Windows, Mac and Linux. To use the information on the identity card, for example, to read data, authenticate or sign documents, Zetes has developed several tools. Thanks to integration with your own application, each user enjoys a flawless user experience.

Would you like to integrate one of our tools into your application to add these eID functionalities? Feel free to contact us.

Please note: Belgian government websites do not currently support mobile applications (iOS nor Android).
