After a short while the download will complete. The AbleSign app has been downloaded but not yet installed. If you have not enabled ‘install unknown apps’ for Downloader, you will receive a security message as shown below and prompted to change your settings.

If you have already configured the downloader app correctly you will not see the below screen – jump straight to the Install the AbleSign app section further down this page.
