    DWP Electronic Signature Pad

    Hello,

    They ask for your signature digital when you sign on? I had to put it in 4 times before it was accepted you get 6 shots what happens if you fail it?

    Thanks.

    electronic capture is not mandatory , so you can refuse to use it, and to answer the question they should just revert to the normal methods pen & paper

    There is no legal requirement to sign electronically.

    See this recent FOI reply about electronic signing for JSA.

    If ever I'm asked to sign anything digitally, I always just make a scribble.

    I think an electronically stored signature is just asking for trouble - far too easy to misuse.

    Maybe I'm just a little paranoid, but I trust no one . . .

    You mean like the ones DWP do when they receive your recorded delivery mail. The one for my PIP application was just a question mark.
