Online notarization represents the future of the notary industry. It offers unparalleled convenience, fraud prevention and extra security for both consumers and businesses, and it improves on every aspect of the notarial process. To learn more about how online notarization works and why it’s more secure and accessible than traditional notarization, watch this short video here.
Here’s a quick rundown of how it works: Notarize is an electronic notary public platform and software service offered to clients via any web-enabled desktop or laptop with a webcam or via any Android, iPhone, or iPad. Notarize’s service enables a face-to-face meeting with a notary, just like meeting with a traditional notary public in-person, but the meeting takes place entirely online.
You simply register on the Notarize app or website, then upload your document(s) and verify your identity. You verify your identity using knowledge-based authentication, which offers you a series of specific questions that only you can answer. Once your ID has been verified, your identity is further validated using a government-issued photo ID. You are then connected with a commissioned notary public via live audio-video call. The notary public re-confirms your identity visually using the scanned photo ID, and then witnesses as you electronically sign the document. Similar to how a traditional notary operates, the notary in the Notarize Network signs and places his or her notarial seal on your document. For greater security, the notary in the Notarize Network then completes the electronic notarization process using digital tools. Once complete, you will receive detailed instructions to access your notarized document online and can deliver it or send it electronically to whomever you would like. The whole process is completed in minutes. In accordance with governing law, all video calls are recorded so that any legally authorized party may view and verify your electronic notarization.
