    What is the difference between the smooth signature and the e-signature?

    What is the difference between the smooth signature and the e-signature? Are they both secure and legally binding without the use of Adobe DC esign?

    There is not so much differences between the smooth signature and the e-signature. The only difference is you are using the smooth pen with  smooth signature.

    Smooth Signature is a great edition because it increases the accuracy of the signature by rendering it using a smooth pen that responds gracefully to the use of a mouse, finger or stylus.


    This enables the ability to scrutinize the authenticity of electronic signatures with more detail.


    E-signatures are legally binding on almost all countries and states, but we still recommend consulting with your lawyer.


    JotForm records the IP address and time of the signature made so that also provides additional confirmation about the signer of the document. 


    I  also suggest you to check our Adobe DC eSign Services widget as well.
