You have been asked to sign a document with ZealiD. What to do?

When a document needs to be signed following the most secure requirements, a sender can choose to require a qualified electronic signature (QES). At Evidos, we use ZealiD as one of the providers for qualified electronic signatures. There are a few steps you need to take in order to successfully verify and sign.

Create a ZealiD account

To be able to user ZealiD you first have to download the mobile app on your smartphone via the App Store or Google Play. After that you have to connect your ID information within the app whilst creating a account. You only have to do this once. Please note that the email and phone codes are valid for around 10 minutes before expiring.
