The eGov PH App: A Comprehensive Guide

The Philippine government has recently introduced a new app — a one-stop online system for government services through a single mobile application. The e-Government Philippines app, dubbed “eGov PH”, is a convenient and easy-to-use platform that provides access to a wide range of government services and information — with just a few clicks!

In today’s world where there are different apps for absolutely everything, is it actually worth it to download yet another app? We at Bonito Tech tried the eGov PH app to see what it has to offer.

How to get the eGOV PH app

The app is available for free on both Google Play and App Store. Since it is a meant to be used as a mobile application, there is no web version of the service, and their site just provides information and features about the app.

On your Google Play Store or Apple App Store:

Step 1. 🔍 Search the app by typing eGov PH in the search bar. Don’t forget the PH — or you might end up downloading another app named eGov, which is a news magazine on e-governance.

Step 2. ⏬Download the app to your device. It may be best to use WiFi, as the app is around around 17MB for Android, and around 59MB for iOS.

Step 3. 📱Install and wait for it to finish.

How to register for eGOV PH

Once installed, you can start the registration process by following these steps.

Step 1. Provide your mobile number and agree to the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.

Step 2. Once done, you will receive an OTP (One-Time Password) on your phone. Enter the OTP.

Step 3. You will then be asked to create an MPIN (Mobile PIN). Be sure not to forget your 6 digit pin as you will use this every time you login to the app.

💡 Please note that your account must be verified before you can use most of the app’s features. You can scan your PhilSys QR for faster registration, or you can manually input your personal information.

The app will also ask to take a live selfie 🤳 which will be used as your ID picture for the app.

What if I don’t verify my account?

Unverified accounts have limited access to the app. You can only view the Tourism tab which shows featured tourist destinations, with directions on how to get to them. We also tried the search feature to look for other spots, but nothing turned up.

To access all the features of the app, it would be best to verify your account.

Services in the eGOV PH app

Here are the services that are currently available on eGov PH:

🏢 National Government Agencies (NGAs)

Under this tab, you will see a search bar and a list of several NGAs. The search bar can only check for the agencies listed, and not the particular services they provide.

This section of the app will direct you to the websites of particular services that you may need, like NBI Clearance or the SSS Member portal. This saves you the time and effort of searching Google, and saves you from having to download additional apps. In order to continue, you will also need to agree to share your basic contact information with the agency you are accessing.

Take note that some services may not be currently available, such as DFA’s e-Passport and eApostille.

🏠 Local Government Services (LGUs)

Similar to the above, clicking this will direct you to the website of the LGU where you reside. You can change the city by choosing the Select LGU button.

💼 Jobs

Clicking this will link you to eJobs, where you setup a digital version of your resume. Follow the 3 simple steps that the page will walk you through, so you can access more of its features.

Is it safe to use the eGov PH app?

According to their FAQ, the app is designed with “strict security protocols” to ensure that data and personal information are kept secure.
