Answer: If you are looking for reliable and convenient notary services, you will quickly find that there are many options available.

While traditional notary services such as walk-in, traveling, and mobile notarization each have their own pro’s and con’s, Remote Online Notarization (RON) is the only option that saves you time, money, and effort when you need notarization.

What is Remote Online Notarization (RON)?

Remote online notarization (RON) is a type of notarization carried out entirely online using audio-visual technology and electronic forms. This differs from more traditional notarization services where the document signers must appear in person before a notary to complete a signature. 

Online notarization allows both notaries and document signers to complete a notarization act within minutes from wherever they happen to be located. This eliminates the need to schedule a place and time to meet with a notary beforehand, giving you the freedom to notarize documents exactly when you need them.

RON is secure and easy to use

Remote online notarization is also the most secure form of notarization. This is because with online notarization, the documents and signer identities are analyzed and verified using a detailed, knowledge-based authentication system.

In addition to verifying the signer’s identities, the entire notarization process will be recorded and stored. This detailed record ensures that if any disputes arise down the road, every bit of original information will be available for review. 

Finally, the digital seal and certificate provided by the online notary ensure that the signed document is sealed with a tamper-proof code. This code identifies and tracks any unauthorized changes made to the document so that any disputes may be easily resolved. 

Best of all, setting up and using these features takes mere minutes to set up. With remote online notarization, you’ll never have to worry about scheduling extra time to allow for notarization. 

How to notarize your document online in 5 easy steps:

  1. At the time of the document signing, the signers and the notary will appear on screen together via a two-way audio-visual internet connection. This connection will take place through a secure, established RON technology provider
  2. The document(s) that will be signed will be displayed on the screen for all parties to review.
  3. The signers will then apply an electronically-created signature. 
  4. Next, the notary will apply their own electronic signature, along with an electronic seal and their digital certificate. This certificate is a unique piece of code that will attach to the notarized document, verifying the notarization and providing a layer of tamper-proof security.
  5. The document is now notarized and stored for all parties to access at any time, as needed.
