Frequently asked questions

Is an electronic signature as legal as a paper signature?
Chevron icon

Yes! Electronic signatures are federally protected by the ESIGN Act of 2000. They’re also protected on a statewide basis by the UETA Act. Internationally, eSignatures are protected by various acts and legislations. We have customers using HelloSign in Australia, the EU and more!

Is it secure to use electronic signatures to sign documents?
Chevron icon

Yep! It’s absolutely secure as long as you’re working with a verified and secure eSignature provider. HelloSign offers bank-level security to ensure that your information and documents remain protected. This includes:

  • Hosting in a state-of-the-art SAS70 Type II, SSAE 16 facility that has achieved ISO 27001 certification.
  • A connection that’s encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). That’s the same level of security at most leading banks!
  • Documents are stored and encrypted at rest using AES 256-bit encryption.
