An electronic signature, or e-signature, is a legal way to gain consent or approval on electronic forms or documents where it’s impractical to get a physical signature. Under no circumstances would we ask you for security details such as your PIN, online banking codes or passwords.
HSBC LiveSign powered by Adobe is a cloud-based service that replaces the physical signature process with a fully automated electronic signature made available for HSBC clients. With HSBC LiveSign, customers can easily sign documents anywhere, anytime, and on any device within minutes.
Simply open the link provided in the email and follow the instructions. This can be done by using a mobile phone, tablet or computer. There is no additional requirement of installing software or applications, logins or scanning.
The sender of the email will appear in your inbox something like this:
HSBC Staff Name <email@example.com>
This is a secure message powered by Adobe Sign/EchoSign and issued by HSBC. The email template might vary slightly, but you can expect a genuine message to look like this:
The document name may vary depending on the form being sent out.
If you have not received one of these before, you might be suspicious.
It’s a good idea to be on your guard against possible phishing scams - but HSBC does send out genuine messages asking you to sign documents using firstname.lastname@example.org.
EchoSign, as written and seen above, is owned by Adobe Sign. It’s the technology that allows you to provide an electronic signature.
