An electronic signature, or e-signature, is a legal and easy way to get consent or approval on online contracts or forms. Signing documents is simple once you have a saved e-signature with your Adobe cloud account.

In order to keep your signature secure, you should create a digital ID. If you have not already, visit our guide on creating a digital ID with your signature for security purposes.

1. Login to Adobe via desk top or web portal.

2. If you signed on via desktop, open Adobe Acrobat, then click Adobe Acrobat Sign in the left navigation bar. This will prompt you to the online site to create your signature.

8. You have 3 options to create a signature:

  1. Draw your signature using your mouse or touch pad.
    • (Recommended if you have a mouse or touchpad, because it closely simulates a real signature).
  2. Select an image as your signature.
    • (Not recommended unless you have a high quality image of your official signature).
  3. Create your signature on a mobile device
    • (Recommended option if you do not have a touch pad, because it allows you to sign with your finger, closely replicating a real signature).

9. Click Apply once your signature is complete.

10. You can also create initials the same way you created your signature. Once you're done you will be able to see both under your My Signature tab.

Success! You are now ready to use your Adobe signature.
