Use your passport to sign
For numerous years, we have happily used our passports as a valid photo ID, and with our latest update, you can now use it even more. From today, you can use it to sign agreements and documents, and you can click here to see how to use your passport with your SignIt solution.
In Scandinavia, it is most advantageous to use digital ID solutions such as MitID or BankID. They are directly linked to the citizens’ social security numbers and offer a secure digital identity. In this way, the people of Scandinavia benefit from a high degree of online security and identity protection. At the same time, these digital IDs are easy to use, with most people eventually using the associated apps. With a simple swipe, they can quickly accept and approve appointments from the smartphone.
However, digital IDs aren’t as widespread outside Scandinavia globally and even within the EU. In many countries, they do not have a similar digital infrastructure, and here the passport signature solution is quite relevant as it can be used internationally. With this update, you can safely send a contract abroad and have it signed without considering the given country's digital infrastructure.
Electronic signatures are widely used on a global scale, but using the passport signature offers the benefits of digital signatures. There are critical differences between the electronic and digital approaches worth mentioning, so we’ll briefly touch on them in the following.
In a way, an electronic signature is quite similar to a signature in pen and ink in that you write your signature on either paper or a touch screen. You can experience this kind of signature in several stores when you, e.g. sign service agreements and subscriptions on a tablet.
With our solution, you use a digital signature instead. These are characterised by the fact that you do not physically write your signature on either paper or touch screen. Your signature will not be found anywhere. Digital signatures instead use your personal information and two-factor authentication to authenticate the agreement and validate your identity.
When you use a passport to sign, the passport information and chip are scanned and loaded to confirm that you physically have the passport in hand. At the same time, facial recognition is used to validate your identity so that no one other than the passport owner can sign. We use Nets Passport Reader, which uses the latest security technologies to best secure you and your business partners.
It is essential to mention that both types of signatures are legally binding, but you get increased identity protection and online security with digital signatures. At the same time, you can also better make sure you get the right person's signature when you send documents and contracts.
We are excited to offer this opportunity to our current and future users. With this update, you can safely do business with suppliers and partners across national borders and enjoy a higher degree of online security and identity validation.
