Using Adobe Sign to digitally sign a document

On Mobile

Please note that the instructions and screenshots below are specific to an iPhone, but they should be very similar on other devices.

Step 1

You will receive an email similar to the one below. This shows that we have sent you a document that requires an electronic signature. The email will be sent from adobesign@adobesign.com.

To make a start, click the Review and Sign button as highlighted below:

Adobe sign mobile step 1

You will now get a choice of browsers to open the link. This is up to you so that you can choose your favourite browser. I always choose the default browser (bottom option), which uses Safari.

Adobe sign mobile step 2

Step 2

Once you click the button, a new window will open, looking like the one below. The document has now loaded.

You will most likely see a message at the bottom of the screen asking about enabling cookies on your browser. The easiest option is to select Enable All, as below, but if you are concerned about privacy and data, you can select Customise and your preferences.

Adobe sign mobile step 3a

Following this, you will see a green box confirming that your preferences have been saved, and then you will be asked to accept the Adobe terms of use. There is nothing to worry about here, and we conduct thorough due diligence on all software we use.

You can click the white x to close the cookie settings and then Continue to agree to the Adobe terms of use.

Step 3

You can now use your finger to scroll through the document. Ensure you read the document and fully understand the content. If you have any questions, please get in touch before continuing.

If you wish to be taken to the first point that requires your attention, click Start in the top right corner as highlighted below.

Adobe sign mobile step 4a

Step 4

When you have either scrolled to the point that requires your attention or clicked the start button from the previous step, you will notice the blue box below that asks you to Sign here.

Tap inside this box to continue.

Step 5

You now have the option to add your signature. By default, the options at the top will have ‘Draw’ selected.

Please note that your electronic signature does not need to match your real-life signature, so the simplest option for you to choose is to type your name.

Adobe sign mobile step 6a

You can select the Type tab at the top and type in your name, as I have done below.

Click Apply, and your signature will be added to the document.

Step 6

If that was the only signature you required, the blue button in the top right corner will show “Finish”, and you can skip forward to step 7.

If you have more signatures to give, the blue button in the top right corner should now show an arrow like the one below. Click this to proceed to the next place that requires attention.

Once you are taken to that place, you can tap in the highlighted box and your signature should appear without needing to add it again.

Now, it should be filled in as below.

Adobe sign mobile step 8

Step 7

If you are required to sign or initial more fields, the blue arrow will appear again, as in step 6, and you can repeat the process.

You will know when you have finished signing because the blue box in the top right will read “Finish”.

This is NOT the final step – tap “Finish” and move on to step 8.

Adobe sign mobile step 10

Step 8

The below black box will appear at the top of the screen.

To finish off, tap on “Tap to sign” and this should complete the process.

Adobe sign mobile step 11

You should see a screen like the one below confirming that you have successfully signed the document.

We will receive a copy of the signed document in our emails, and you should receive one, too, for your records.

Step 2

Once you click the button, a new window will open, looking like the one below. The document has now loaded.

You will most likely see a message at the bottom of the screen asking about enabling cookies on your browser. The easiest option here is to select Enable all like below, but if you are concerned about privacy and data, then you can select “Customise” and select your preferences.

Following this, you will see a green box confirming that your preferences have been saved, and then you will be asked to accept the Adobe terms of use. There is nothing to worry about here, and we conduct thorough due diligence on all software we use.

Step 3

You can now scroll through the document and read everything to ensure happiness. To do this, click and drag the scroll bar on the right-hand side, as highlighted in red below.

This document is an example application form for a Praemium plan. Your document may look very similar to this.

Ensure you read the document and fully understand the content. If you have any questions, please get in touch before continuing.

If you wish to be taken to the first point that requires your attention, click Start in the bottom left corner, as highlighted below.

Adobe Sign - Step 2

Step 4

When you have either scrolled to a point that requires your attention or clicked the start button from the previous step, you will notice the start button rotates and points at the field that requires your signature, name, or initials.

This will look similar to the one below—notice the start arrow pointing to the right and the box indicating that you should click here to sign.

Notice also that the date field has been autocompleted with the date you sign the document.

Click inside the box to continue.

Adobe Sign - Step 3

Step 5

A small window will appear, looking like the one below.

You now have the option to add your signature.

Please note that your electronic signature does not need to match your real-life signature, so the simplest option is to type your name, as I have done below. I have highlighted this in red for you to see.

You can select the ‘Draw’ tab at the top and try to draw your signature using your mouse or touchscreen. Similarly, if you have an image of your signature, you could select the image tab and choose that image to use instead.

Click Apply, and your signature will be added to the document.

Adobe Sign - Step 4

Step 6

The arrow on the left side that read “Start” should now have been changed to Next.

As before, you can either click this to skip to the next part of the document that needs signing, or you can continue scrolling through the document until you naturally find that point.

Adobe Sign - Step 5

Step 7

Once you reach that point, click in the box to sign again, and your signature from step 4 should automatically be entered into the document.

You should not need to repeat step 4 where you typed your name or drew your signature. If it asks you to do this, that is not a problem and continue as in step 4.

Adobe Sign - Step 6

Step 8

If you must sign or initial more fields, the “Next” arrow will appear again, as in step 5, and you can repeat the process.

You will know when you have finished signing because a black box will appear at the bottom of the screen, and on the far right side, a blue button that reads “Click to Sign” will display.

Adobe Sign - Step 7

Step 9

That is all. You have successfully digitally signed the document!

You will see a message similar to the one below, and a copy of the signed document will be emailed for your records.

We will also receive an email with the signed document and can proceed with the next steps.
