The desire to fill and sign documents digitally has taken off over the last several months as we all tackle more business and personal tasks from home. Maybe you have a work order to complete, a contract to sign, or a health or school form to fill out. The beauty of doing all this digitally is that you can access it on your own device, complete it at your own speed, and avoid other people’s pens and papers. (Pro tip: if you can’t get away from paper completely, use the Adobe Scan app to snap a picture and turn it into a digital, fillable form in no time.)

So, what’s the best way to fill and sign something digitally? Adobe Acrobat of course! With Acrobat, you can fill and sign anything, on any device.

If you’re already an Acrobat subscriber, Acrobat online gives you the ability to use many of the tools and services available in the full-featured desktop app. Acrobat online offers anyone the ability to work with their PDFs with a variety of free tools and services – like Fill & Sign, share and review services, and document storage. Use the Fill & Sign tool to fill, sign and send PDFs on your desktop, from the mobile app, or in your web browser. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can take advantage of a 7-day free trial to explore Acrobat for yourself. Fill & Sign is just the tip of the Acrobat iceberg.

If you’re completely new to Acrobat, and you want to dabble with filling and signing for free, try our new free Acrobat online experience right from your browser. This is the simplest way to fill and sign a document quickly, without downloading anything. In addition to Fill & Sign, our free Acrobat online experience lets you quickly convert Word to PDF, Excel to PDF, PowerPoint to PDF, or JPEG to PDF.

When you have the right tool for the job, you’re never searching for a solution. It’s always just right there at your fingertips. You can count on Adobe to deliver.
