Can I sign documents online?
Absolutely. pdfFiller allows you to E-Sign PDFs or other documents using electronic signature technology. The electronic signature you create with pdfFiller is legally binding.
Are digital and electronic signatures the same thing?
An electronic signature is any piece of data like an image or a symbol, while a digital signature needs to have a certificate-based digital ID. Digital signatures are used to digitally “seal” an electronic document and prove that the signer has been verified.

Can I edit my signatures?
Yes. Use the Signature Wizard to change your existing signatures. You can edit your name and choose between different types of handwriting for your signature. You can also add multiple signatures by uploading, capturing, typing, or drawing.
Do I need to add my signature every time?
