What is an electronic signature?

When signing a document using your computer, you need to abide by certain rules to ensure that the signature is legally binding. To do this, you can use digital signature software such as Yousign.

The electronic signature will allow you to sign a document without even having to put pen to paper. But be careful! It’s not as simple as sticking the image of a signature on a document or scribbling initials on a tablet.

The computer signature will only be legally binding if it does the following:

  • Signatory identification

    Ascertains the identity of the signatory

  • Sealed document

    Ensures the document’s integrity

Does that seem complicated? It’s actually very simple! Yousign offers you an electronic signature service that is certified at European level. Our app allows you to easily sign documents on the computer and make them fully legally binding.
