What do I see on the document?
Electronically signed documents usually have an image that looks like a stamp. This is not the e-signature itself, just the signature placeholder of the actual e-signature. Some trust providers place this in the upper corners of the document, while others place it in the lower corners. For Evrotrust, this watermark-like image is at the bottom of the last page, with up to eight visible.
The e-signature is attached to the whole document, it is an integral part of it, and the placeholder is only symbolic.
Where can I verify my e-signature?
You can verify the e-signature on various online portals and PDF readers, such as e.g. the Adobe reader. If you do not have a PDF reader that has a recent certificate store that can be used to verify that a given signature is valid, the easiest way to do so is to check it in Evrotrust's signature checker at the following link:
In addition, it is done using the so-called Government Electronic Signature Verification Service, which is available at the following link:
The other web option is available on the European Commission's website:
This is useful if you want to check documents smaller than 10 Mb. If we upload the unsigned version, we can also see the method used to encrypt (SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, or SHA512).
