Re: Police knocking on the door asking for ID

Normal? Only for you


And Last my favourite:

You have the right to refuse to testify and refusal of identification

Sorry what a crappy and dangerous advice (and also wrongly translated).

What you can refuse is fingerprinting, being photographed, and DNA swaps.
But you must provide your identity, and if you are not Swiss you must produce a valid passport or ID card within appropriated time. You can leave passport/ID at home but in most cantons (police law is cantons law) they can take you to the station (this is not considered as an arrest) to verify your details. If you refuse to identify yourself they might arrest you and in that instance they are allowed to take fingerprints, photographs, DNA samples and everything else which might be useful to establish your identity.
