Create a free Adobe Acrobat Sign account

Free accounts are provided by Adobe for the signers of documents that want to gain access to the contracts that they have signed. Sending functionality is severely limited. If you have a company account, contact your Administrator to have them add you.

Creating a free user for Adobe Acrobat Sign

Anyone with a valid email address can create a free account in the Adobe Document Cloud, and gain access to their agreements.

Free accounts are primarily for signers of documents, and allow any registered email address to view all of the agreements that have been sent to that email box.

Senders that do not attach a PDF copy to the Signed and Filed email may want to make note of the registration URL so they can help their signers gain access to their contracts, without having to send a copy through email.

Signers that want to save their signature in the system may do so once their email is registered.


The Adobe Acrobat Sign application can only differentiate users by their unique email address.

You as a person may have several email addresses for various reasons, but the application cannot assume different email addresses to be one real person.

For this reason, make sure you are registering only the email address that was used when signing the document.


To register an email address, and gain access to its content:

  1. Click the Create a free account button on the registration page

  2. Click the Create an account link

    Create an Account

  3. Fill in the form with your information.

    • Remember to use the same email address that previous agreements were sent to if you are looking to review those agreements
    • Click Create Account
    Fill the form

  4. Verify your email address.

    • Log into the email address that you configured your new user with and find the new account email from Adobe.
    • Click the verification link to approve your new user account.
    • Return to the Verify your Email page
      • Click Check again and continue
    Verify email

Your new user is created and available!

Once logged in, the recent agreements sent to your email will be visible at the bottom of the screen.

  • Filters across the top expose any other content related to your email address
