Can I sign with BankID on mobile?
Yes. You can sign with BankID on Mobile. BankID offers two different implementations of BankID on Mobile. Both of course involves using your cell phone as the item you possess in order to perform two factor authentication. However only the variant “BankID on Mobile OTP (BIM OTP)” supports signing of PDF documents. When starting the BankID signature you should be able to select BankID on Mobile inside the BankID dialogue, and successfully complete the signature wizard.
What do I do if I miss the option "BankID on mobile"?
The BankID signature dialogue defaults to your last used device for BankID one time password (Chip or Mobile). In order to switch to the “BankID on Mobile” please select “Velg annen BankID” on the page requesting the one time password, and select “BankID på Mobil”.
If you do not have this option, please contact the bank that has issued your BankID and request an activation of “BankID on Mobile OTP” on your account.
Can multiple persons sign the same document?
Of course, several signatories may sign the same document even if the signatories are using e-ID from different providers. You may also add new signatories to an already signed document if you please.
Do I have to have a signature widget on all pages?
No, the use of a signature widget is optional and has no bearing on the legal significance of the signature.
As a general rule, we recommend using the signature widget on the first page. The actual electronic signature is always a signature of the entire document.
How do I check that a document is signed?
Validation of both signatures, document content and timestamps are performed automatically by most PDF readers. Usually the PDF reader will show you a signature panel where you can see who has signed and if the signatures are valid.
Can I change the document after it is signed?
No, you cannot modify a signed document without breaking the electronic signature.
Do I have to have a social security number for those who are going to sign?
No, using social security number is optional if available in your account. The use of a social security number has no significance for the signature itself, but is used to control the right person when accessing the signature. The use of a social security number also presupposes that the company has a legal or factual need for this.
