E-Sign’s ID Checker

E-Sign’s iD Checker merges e-signature technology with ID verification software. Our secure identity verification allows you to verify the real-world identity of your signers and e-sign your documents in one integrated transaction. By embedding ID verification into your document processes, you can easily protect your business from financial costs and reputational damage, as well as ensuring you comply with business due diligence and anti-money laundering regulation. By cross referencing against a global ID database, the following identity checks can be completed to ensure your signers are who they say they are:

  • Age Verification
  • Identity Verification
  • Anti-Money Laundering (AML)
  • Know Your Customer (KYC)
  • PEPs and Sanctions


SMS Authentication

On E-Sign’s platform, you can enable SMS authentication when you send a document for e-signing.

This provides an additional layer of security and identity verification for your transactions. All you have to do is select “Send PIN via SMS” and enter your signer’s phone number.

This will send them a one-time passcode via text message, which they must enter on their laptop or computer before they can access the document.

Once they have entered the passcode, they will be able to access and e-sign the document as normal.

Document Access Control

To add an additional layer of security, you can password protect your documents by enabling E-Sign’s document access control. When sending a document to your signer, you can enable password protection by clicking on the small padlock icon.

You can either choose a password yourself or alternatively click the icon to auto-generate one. You will then need to provide your signer with the document password for them to enter before accessing the document.

Once the recipient receives the document email, they simply need to enter the password to access the document. They can then e-sign and return the document as normal. The password protection will remain in place once all parties have signed and will be required to open and view the document.
