Challenge | In a world that’s becoming increasingly digital, it doesn’t make sense that in some areas of our life, we are still required to sign physical documents or show paper ID documents.

Printing, signing and photocopying paper documents is time consuming for both businesses and consumers. There’s also the environmental concern of a business printing hundreds, often thousands of documents, not to mention the security risks – physical documents can easily be lost, stolen or forged.

But times are changing. Businesses are increasingly seeing the benefits of switching to more digital practices to save time and money, and keep pace with the quick, convenient and modern habits of consumers.

If you’re starting a new job for example, the company may get you to sign your contract online via an e-signature. Or if you’re moving to a new house and need to sign a rental agreement, real estate agents are increasingly using e-signature platforms too.

There’s no doubt that adopting e-signature technology could help save your business time and money, and give you additional security and peace of mind. That’s where Yoti Sign comes in.

Solution | Yoti Sign offers the convenience and simplicity of e-signing platforms, but with the additional security of biometric verification and cryptographic signatures.

If you need a document signed, you simply:

  • create a new document or upload existing documents
  • choose who you want to sign it
  • select the level of authentication
  • choose where on the document you want someone to sign it
  • review and send

It’s safe and secure

Yoti Sign offers the flexibility of choosing your level of authentication, from one click email to full biometric authentication at no extra cost. Biometric authentication requires the signee to use Yoti, the free digital identity app, so you can be sure the signee has been fully verified. This gives you 100% confidence about who has signed the document.

Yoti Sign is simple to use on multiple devices, and compatible with all popular browsers and operating systems. This makes it convenient for the signee to access and sign your documents any time, anywhere.

It’s legally binding

All Yoti Sign e-signatures are legally binding, admissible in court, and EIDAS compliant. An audit trail is also kept for every document.

It’s fast

Signing paper documents can be a hassle for both your business and your customers. It can take days, sometimes weeks, to send and receive physical documents; slowing down important business processes.

Yoti Sign makes it faster, simpler and more convenient for everyone involved in the signing process. The bulk feature lets you send a document to 1,000 recipients at one time, or add multiple signees to a document. You can even get real-time status updates to ensure the signing process runs as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.


  • Save time and money getting documents signed
  • Close deals faster – don’t wait days or weeks for documents to be signed and returned
  • Stronger security – don’t risk important documents being lost, stolen or tampered with
  • Reduce the pressure of safely storing, managing or destroying documents
  • Create a better experience for your customers and your employees
  • Reduce your paper consumption

Use case | Estate agent, Abel of Hertford, bought Yoti Sign for low cost, simplicity, and functionality of being able to link a signee’s biometrics to the document.

Using Yoti Sign accelerated Abel of Hertford’s contract signing process, as it negates the need for them to physically post contracts and wait for them to be returned. Additionally, linking a signee’s biometrics to the document has increased their level of security. Tenant identity verification is completed digitally, which has greatly sped up the whole signing process.
