How it works with SMS

The recipient receives an SMS with your message and a short link to the document.
When the link is clicked, an ebox window is opened in the mobile browser, of course the url is possible to use on a computer too if they so prefer.
In the ebox view they can see:
- who sent the message
- a link to open the document
- a link to sign the document
- the possibility to reply to the sender, befor or after the signature is made
- the possibility to block the sender if they do not want to have any more messages from that sender


You can open the unsigned document to read it first.
When you are happy you go back to the ebox view and click Sign.
 
When the signature is completed the ebox view is updated and the signed document is avaliable for download.

We use an international standard for signed pdf's called PAdES. This means that you can verify the signature using the attached code, using Adobe Acrobate Reader or this EU tool
The signed document is encrypted to prevent any manipulation.
