Configure dual-factor authentication to protect your embedded signing sessions

The signNow API strengthens your document security by warding off unauthorized users. While setting up your integrated eSignature invite, all you need to do is incorporate an authentication parameter in the request body, define the preferred authentication method, and specify validation credentials.

  • signNow provides developers with complete SDKs for every popular language, allowing them to integrate eSignatures without writing a single line of code.
  • With signNow’s detailed documentation, integrating electronic signatures with your app is a breeze.
  • signNow goes beyond eSignatures. Use it to create fillable forms, request payments, and manage your documents securely using simple API calls.

Choose a signer authentication method that fits into your workflow

SMS verification

Send an SMS with a personalized message and unique password. Signers will be required to enter the password you shared with them via SMS to access a signing session inside your application.

Phone call verification

Provide a relevant phone number and your signer will receive a phone call prior to gaining access to an embedded signing session. The signer passes authentication once they pick up the phone call.

Password protection

Create a secret password for accessing an embedded signing session and share it discreetly with your signers. They will have to enter the password to complete the verification and access your document.

Enhance the security of your integrated signing experiences with two-factor authentication

Improved security & compliance

Confirm the identity of users before they can sign documents within your application. Reduce the risk of fraudulent activities and ensure your app complies with the highest data security regulations.

Personalized user experience

Customize the two-factor authentication process with personalized messages using the signNow API. This not only adds an extra layer of security but also enhances the user experience by making the process more engaging and intuitive.

Easy and quick implementation

All you need to set up dual-factor authentication via the API is add a few lines of code while configuring your embedded eSignature invite.
