Two-Factor Authentication

This means that even if someone manages to get a hold of your login information, they won’t be able to access your account and view confidential information.

Certificate of Completion

Whenever you use jSign to sign a document and collect signatures, you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion that shows the IP address, browser, device, and location of each signer. This allows users to ensure that documents were viewed and signed only by the intended recipients.

Geo Location

Geo Location records the exact GPS location of a document signature and identifies what type of device was used to sign the document. By providing this information, jSign helps users confirm the validity of the signature.
