Unlocking signing with QES (maximum legal weight)

You'll have to verify your identity to unlock signing with the qualified electronic signature (QES) according to EU or Swiss law.

You can unlock the qualified electronic signature (QES) according to EU or Swiss law by verifying your identity. If you usually sign your documents in the EU, video identification is the way to go; if in Switzerland – you’ll have to verify your identity face-to-face.

To verify your identity via video call:

  • Log in to my.skribble.com and click Profile

Note: If you have a Swiss mobile number and you've entered it correctly, you’ll be able to sign immediately with high legal weight – the advanced electronic signature (AES).

To activate the qualified electronic signature (QES) as well, you’ll need to increase the legal weight one last time.
