Create a digital signature
So, you’ve been asked to digitally sign a document? No problem. It’s easy to create digital signatures.
Digital signatures are created online and applied to online documents, rather than using a pen to write your signature physically (also known as a “wet signature”). Digital signatures provide an extra level of security by using technology that encrypts the signature, verifying the identity of the person signing.
When you receive an email with a link to the document you need to digitally sign, here’s what to do:
- Click the link. Your document should open in an electronic signature tool such as DocuSign.
- Agree to electronic signing. You may be asked to agree to sign. After confirming agreement and if the document was sent via DocuSign, you should see tags with instructions to Start or Sign.
- Click each tag and follow the instructions to add your digital signature.
- Verify your identity. and follow the instructions to add your digital signature.
