    If you use the A-Trust signature app (formerly Handy-Signatur App), the connection between your mobile phone and the app must be reset and reactivated. To do this, open the A-Trust signature app (formerly Handy-Signatur App) on your mobile phone, select the menu item Erweiterte Einstellungen in the Einstellungen  menu and click on the option Zurücksetzen. Press the App jetzt zurücksetzen button and confirm the process with ZURÜCKSETZEN  in the subsequent pop-up. A confirmation is displayed in the next view. Use the Weiter button to start the app linking. After you have pressed the button QR-Code einscannen, the scan window opens and you can capture the QR code that is displayed in Aktivierung - Schritt 5 (see figure Linking the app on the mobile device).
