How to Create E-Signature
Signatures are commonly used to authenticate a document or writing and to bind individuals by the clauses contained in the document. While most people would generally prefer physical signatures, it is proven to be quite a hassle especially when the signer has to print the document, sign, scan and send the signed document to the other party. Such inconvenient process can be avoided by creating an electronic signature instead.
It is more efficient to create an electronic signature and more environmental friendly too – you need not waste papers! Besides, electronic signatures are also legally recognized in Malaysia by the Digital Signature Act 1997 and Electronic Commerce Act 2006.
