With Addo Sign you have the possibility to validate your recipients on their CPR-number. This article will go through what CPR validation is, what it can be used for and how to activate and use it.
What is CPR validation?
CPR validation is a function to validate a person on their CPR number, which allows you to check the identity of a person. Thus, CPR validation can be used to validate that the person is who they say they are.
What can CPR validation be used for?
CPR validation can be used to validate who is receiving documents sent to a specific email. This is done by validating the CPR-number, which also obtains full name, CPR-number and address. For example, this is useful in situations with confidential documents where it is important that the correct person receives the documents. In this situation, one can therefore start by sending a CPR validation to the person, and then use the CPR-number received during the CPR validation to lock a new transaction to be signed by the person with this CPR-number.
So if you have any doubt that the email you are sending to belongs to the correct person, we recommend that you use CPR validation.
How does it work?
Sending a request for CPR validation through Addo is simple and fast. It is done as follows:
- Go to the Send-page
- Choose Validate CPR
- Fill in Name and Email on the person you wish to CPR-validate
- Press Request CPR validation
The recipient will then receive an email that looks like this:
By clicking on UDFYLD INFORMATIONER (eng: fill in information) link, the recipient is redirected to this page:
Here, the recipient fills in his/her CPR-number and will then be redirected to log in with NemID. Once this is done, the recipient will finally be sent to sign the validation. The document to be signed will look like this:
Once the recipient has clicked the OK button, the validation will be completed and signed, and both sender and recipient will receive the signed document.
