Because we believe in providing our users with more choice, we’re rolling out support for Chave Movel!
Chave Movel is a fast and secure way to sign documents online, with all of the legal benefits of a traditional signature. It’s faster than handwritten signatures because you don’t need to print anything or fax it back—you just type your name into the box on their website, then click “Sign” and your job is done! And because Chave Movel uses electronic signatures instead of handwritten ones, there’s no need for messy ink stains or smudges.
But what makes it truly exciting is its security: unlike traditional hand-written signatures that anyone could forge by tracing over them with pencils and copying machines (or even just taking photos), electronic signatures like Chave Movel are much more difficult to fake. This means that if someone tries to copy your signature from one document onto another one without permission from either party involved (like if they wanted access to sensitive information), they won’t be able to do so successfully—which makes this option an excellent choice not only for those who have poor handwriting but also those who want additional peace-of-mind when signing official documents online.
We believe in providing our users with more choice, and we’re proud to be one of the first services in Portugal to offer Chave Movel. This is just one example of how we’re working hard to keep you up-to-date when it comes to signing documents and contracts.
