DocuSign Identify

Choose among multiple enhanced methods to verify signers’ identities

Identify your way

DocuSign Identify has a spectrum of choices for organizations that need to identify signers beyond the standard practice of clicking an emailed link.

DocuSign ID Verification is fully integrated with DocuSign eSignature, enabling customers to securely verify signers’ identities prior to accessing the agreement. DocuSign ID Verification supports government photo IDs and European eIDs by analyzing the document security features and matching the name on the agreement against the name on the ID. After a successful verification, the signer can view the agreement and sign as usual.
