In-Person Signing Feature Overview
In-Person Signing permits a signer who is physically present at the time of signature or who does not have access to the internet to electronically sign a document. An Administrator with a Foxit eSign account will need to help the signer and conduct the in-person signing. You will be able to create legally binding, electronically signed papers without needing to use an e-mail address.
