  • Can I use any phone number to send a document for signature with authentication?

    • Yes! As long as your country is listed on our system, you can select your country code and the phone # to send a document with authentication.

  • What happens when the signer does not have mobile network coverage after I've sent out the document for signature
    • The signer has the option to Verify at a later time and complete the flow; they simply have to click the email they got to restart the signing flow.
  • How will the signer authenticate themselves?
    • Once the signer clicks on the email or the push notification, they will be taken to a page where they can request a One Time Password. The signer can enter the OTP they receive on their mobile phone to verify that they're the intended signer.

  • What happens when the signer can't verify themselves? How many chances have they got before they fail their verification?
