Unlocking signing with QES (maximum legal weight)

You can unlock the qualified electronic signature (QES) by identifying yourself online via video (to sign under EU law) or face-to-face (to sign under Swiss law).

To unlock the QES under EU law from your Skribble account:

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).

You don't have a Swiss mobile phone number? No problem. You can activate the advanced electronic signature (AES) by identifying yourself via video call. Read on to learn more.

To unlock the qualified electronic signature (QES) (or the advanced electronic signature (AES) if you don't have a Swiss mobile phone number), you’ll need to increase the legal weight one last time.

Once you’ve successfully verified your identity, both QES and AES will be activated on Skribble. Our identification partner will notify you by SMS once you're ready to sign.

Do you usually sign your documents under Swiss law?

In this case, you'll have to verify your identity face-to-face to unlock the qualified electronic signature (QES). Find a location nearby.
