Qualified Electronic Signatures from HelloSign
Meet the most secure form of eSignatures under eIDAS with Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES) from HelloSign.
Prepare and send
As a HelloSign customer, you will prepare and send your QES requests as you normally would, with one additional step. When adding who needs to sign, you will select 'Enable Qualified eSignature'. This adds the QES requirements to the request and will require your signer to verify his or her identity with our partner IDnow.
Your signer reviews
Your signer will receive an email from HelloSign with QES authentication required. Upon clicking 'Review & Sign', the signer will be sent to HelloSign where they can review and complete the required fields. With the fields complete, your signer will click 'Finish with IDnow' and be taken to IDnow for verification.
Without leaving the HelloSign signing page, a new window will open and route your signer to IDnow for ID verification. This ID verification step is a key reason why QES holds the same legal weight as signing in person. Here a trusted IDnow agent will conduct a video call with your signer to validate his or her identity.
Once the signer has been successfully verified, they will confirm their signature through SMS. Next, our Trusted Service Provider (TSP) 'Namirial' (on the EU Trusted List) will generate and apply a digital certificate to the signer's signature. As the sender, you will receive a signed copy of the agreement. Time to celebrate!
