Assurance & Authentication

Assurance & Authentication

Thawte Code Signing Certificates help guarantee the authenticity and identity of your software during the user downloading process. Before you can display your individual name as the publisher and start building your software's online reputation, Thawte requires you to complete the individual validation process, which typically takes 1-3 Days. During the validation process, Thawte requires you to present a notarized form that validates some sort of government issued photo identification and take a quick phone call. Don't worry though, this process is easy and we'll provide you with an easy-to-read validation guide after purchase.

Security & Encryption

The Thawte Code Signing certificate includes a $50,000 warranty. This excellent warranty exists to protect against any unauthorized use, revocation, safety compromise, disclosure, incorrect issuance, and loss of use. So, you can rest assured knowing that your investment is covered.
