To add an authentication method for each recipients to verify themselves before signing the document. There are 3 authentication method available:


    • SMS verification: one-time-password (OTP) will be sent to the recipient’s phone number.
    • OTP Verification: one-time-password is available in the Signing Cloud mobile application. To find it, go to “setting” and the OTP will be under “security” section, signer will need to enable the authentication to get the OTP. The OTP number will refresh every 1 minute.

  • Push Verification: A notification is sent to the signer’s Signing Cloud mobile app. The signer is asked to verify himself with his fingerprint.
