I think the standard practice is just to add a signature image. Sign on blank piece of paper, snap a photo, trim out your sig, preferably convert to PNG or GIF with transparent background. Insert on the form using any free pdf editor that can add an image on top of an existing pdf.

Adobe has a secure digital signature capability, but it's little used.

I just use an app on my phone or tablet called PDF Pro.
Allows you to sign with your finger.
I’m sure there are other apps but that’s the one I use.

Been using Adobe sign and fill app for years for signing docs and emailing to people. Beats printing and faxing.

I normally use Docusign to digitally sign my completed pdf documents. It's free, and accepted almost everywhere. Other solution is to sign on paper, scan, and insert into pdf document has others have suggested.
