RightSignature Unveils New Passcodes Feature for Knowledge-Based Authentication for IRS Compliance

By: Steve Stormoen / Thursday, May 14, 2015

If you are an accountant, CPA or other professional filing forms with the IRS or other regulatory bodies which require having knowledge-based authentication (KBA) methods, RightSignature now offers an optional Passcodes feature for your documents. By enabling Passcodes, your recipients must enter a passcode you specify, such as the last four digits of the signer’s Social Security number, in order to access and sign the document and fulfill KBA standards.

Implementing Passcodes on your documents is easy. Once the feature is enabled on your account, you will see a new option on the Send a Document screen titled “Require Passcode to Sign.” Simply click the button to activate this option, then set the passcode question and the answer your signer will have to input.


Next, fill out and send your document as normal. Your recipient will receive an email with a link to sign your document — which means that before accessing your document, he or she will need to enter the document passcode you specified earlier.


Although adding KBA through the RightSignature Passcodes feature is important for regulatory compliance in many industries, our regular users already enjoy other award-winning security features we offer as standard practice. All documents sent with RightSignature include our password-protected login, biometric signature capture protection, tamper-proof audit log, and bank-level encryption and security. These measures have earned RightSignature the highest-available security rating from the Cloud Security Agency (CSA).

To learn how to enable the Passcodes feature on your account, contact RightSignature today.
