Electronic Signature

How to sign documents online safely and securely

Signing digital versions of documents makes it easier to share them, access them, and collaborate on them as a team, without having to worry about sending paper copies in the mail, or PDFs through endless email chains. But what if you don’t want to share sensitive information or personal details with everyone who has access to the document? 

Signing an online document is one way to keep confidential information secure while still allowing others to digitally see it. Whether you’re working with HR documents that need employee signatures, legal documents that require your signature, or just a form you need to digitally sign so someone else can have access – there are plenty of reasons why you might need to be able to sign a document online. 

In this article we’ll look at 3 different ways you can sign documents online safely and quickly. We’ll cover:

  1. Sign documents online with a digital signature
  2. Sign documents online with Oneflow
  3. Sign documents online with eSignature software

1. Sign documents online with a digital signature

A digital signature is one way to sign a document. It enables you to sign a document digitally by using your unique signature – which is verified by a third party provider. When you sign a document electronically, it’s done so with your unique identity and security information that’s been verified by a third party. 

In other words, a digital signature is an electronic version of your handwritten signature, and can be used with any kind of document or file. Since a digital signature is verified by a third party provider, it’s a great way to sign documents online safely while still keeping your information secure.
