Agreement encryption methods

When sending an agreement, you can set options on the Send page to either verify that the signer is indeed the correct person, or secure the signed, completed document with a password.

These methods of encryption add a level of security that keeps you and your signer's information safe.

Verify signer identity using a password

1. Select Password

This option allows the sender to set a specific password. You can then send that password to your signer, (outside Adobe Sign, for example, by regular email or via phone) to allow them to access and sign the document.

Setting the Password

Note:

Passwords can only contain letters and numbers; no special characters are allowed. For example:

` ~  ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = [ ] \    ;  '  ,  . / { }  |  : " < >?

Note:

It is important to remember the Signing password you set as it is not possible to recover, or reset this password in any way. If the signing password is lost or forgotten, there is no way to access the document, or the transaction in any way. If the document is inaccessible, the sender needs to cancel that transaction and send the document again.

Password protect the signed document

This option allows the sender to set a specific password that is applied to the Signed PDF document. This password is required to open and view the Signed PDF file.

Checking the Show Password checkbox exposes the content of the password field to help ensure the two are correct, and what you intend.

If the two passwords do not match, an error icon appears in the second password field.

Signed Document Password

Note:

Passwords can only contain letters and numbers; no special characters are allowed. For example:

` ~  ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ + - = [ ] \  ; '  ,  . / { } |  : " < >?

Note:

It is important to remember the Signed PDF password you set is embedded into the PDF, and is not possible to recover or reset.

If the Signed PDF password is lost or forgotten, there is no way to open the PDF.
