Hi Sarang.sharma,

There is no option to verify the digital signatures in the PDF on a mobile application.

The digital signatures do not work on the Adobe Acrobat Reader mobile application.

You will be able to view the signature on the PDF.

However, there is no option to add or verify the digital signature on the mobile device.

You will need the desktop version of the application in order to verify the signature.

Hope that answers your query.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Hi @Raghava Rao258731501fj4,

 

Sorry about your experience.

 

With the mobile version, you can now sign using digital certificates. This option is available with the Acrobat Sign mobile application. 

 

However, validating digital signatures is available only on the desktop version of the application.

 

Hope this clarifies your question.

Hi @Gaurav332065830v1z,

 

Signature verification is a separate process from reading the document and it needs to be verified on different devices separately. 

 

Even though mobile devices cannot verify the signature, you should not have any issues reading the document. The pop-up for verification should have an icon to be closed.

 

If this is not what you see, please share a screen recording of the issue for better understanding and investigation.
