If you have already logged in to Unicount with your Estonian e-resident card or resident ID-card then most probably you need to update ID-card software called DigiDoc or your browser plugins are not installed and enabled.
Please note that logging in and signing have different requirements. If you have managed to log in to Unicount you still may not be able to sign without doing some extra steps. It is very common for first time card users to believe that Unicount web service is broken while their problem is related to missing Digidoc update or browser plugin.
Some possible solutions:
- Check if your OS and browser support Estonian ID-card
- If they do please install the latest version of DigiDoc software to your computer
- Make sure that you have browser plugin installed and check that it is enabled
- Then restart your computer.

If still no luck we would suggest trying to use your card to activate Smart-ID signature app on your mobile device. It has the same legal status as ID-card in Estonia and with it you can log in and sign without card reader on any smart device.
