Nearly 1/4 of Hungarians Have Used E-Signatures
Some 86% of Hungarians have already heard of electronic signatures, and nearly a quarter have used them, according to FaceKom's nationwide representative research, writes profitline.hu.
According to the legislation, all documents can now be authenticated with an electronic signature, which is thus considered to have the same probative value as a handwritten one.
The electronic signature also became more popular due to the coronavirus epidemic.
According to Zsigmond Bodnár, the founder and managing director of FaceKom, the development of technology can give further impetus to the spread of the procedure, which is currently hindered by the public's lack of knowledge.
Based on the research results, more than a third of the respondents (34%) indicated that they had not yet used the electronic signature option because they were unfamiliar with the related technological solutions.
