Electronic signature safety: How secure is your eSignature?

Frequently asked questions

How secure are electronic signatures?
Electronic signatures are secure and legally binding when properly implemented. They provide a safe and legally binding alternative to physical signatures thanks to digital certificates and encryption.
Can eSignatures be hacked?
There is always a possibility that eSignatures can be hacked. Still, the likelihood is less as the security measures in place make it very difficult for anyone other than the intended recipient to read the signature. Electronic signatures are often stored on secure servers and verified using unique credentials, making hacking virtually impossible.
Can an electronic signature be rejected?
Yes, an electronic signature can be rejected depending on the legal framework of the country or region. For example, it could be rejected if the signature does not meet the strict security requirements set out by eIDAS regulations in the EU or ESIGN in the U.S. An electronic signature can also be rejected if it does not meet the requirements of the signing party.
