How does online notary work in Florida?
If you plan to use a remote online notary in Florida, you will be required to appear before the notary public virtually, using a state-approved RON platform and a two-way audio-visual connection. This means that all signers will need access to a computer with a secure internet connection, a webcam, and a microphone to appear before the notary.
At the time of notarization, the signers will need to verify their identity to the notary. This can be achieved using several different methods, including the following.
- The notary personally knows the signer and can confirm their identity.
- Presenting a government-issued ID.
- Using knowledge-based authentication (KBA) to verify the signer’s identity.
The online notary will then have the signers audibly confirm that they understand the document and are signing it of their own free will. Once this is confirmed, the signers can provide their eSignatures to the document.
Once the document is signed, the notary will then apply their own digital seal and signature. A notary’s digital seal contains encrypted, tamper-proof information that confirms the notary’s commission and ensures the document will be accepted as legally valid.
Once a document has been notarized online in Florida, by law, it must be securely stored and remain accessible to all signing parties for a minimum of ten years.
