What is a Digital Signature?
A Digital Signature is a fast, secure, and convenient way to sign an electronic document without having to print, sign and scan.
Digital Signatures help verify the authenticity of a signature, as well as protect the integrity of the documents being signed. Meaning that once a digital signature has been added to the electronic document, any alterations made afterwards will automatically void the digital signature and a new one will be required.
Can digital signatures be used to verify the identity of the person signing?
Just like with traditional handwritten signature, a digital signature may not mean the signer is who they say they are. The most basic digital signature programs really only confirm the link between the account holder and the digital signature on the document. However, depending on the software program you select, identity confirmation may be available.
Does a digital signature show up as your actual handwritten signature?
This depends on the digital signature program you select. Some programs will simply add your signature as text, while others use a copy of your signature. Either way, the digital signature appears with a seal which the recipient can view to confirm the identification of the signer(s).
