Australia’s Minister for Government Services, Stuart Robert, has confirmed that an extraordinary 3.2 million Australians attempted to login to myGov in only 20 hours:
We have facilitated 3.2 million logins to myGov over the past 20 hours.
This is just extraordinary demand.
We will continue to run this service 24/7 and progressively increase its capacity as we have over recent days & months.

To put that number into perspective, there were 13 million Australians employed in February.
