Notarize is an on-demand remote electronic notary service that provides legal online notarizations through a secure, video-enabled platform. Founded in 2015, Notarize serves businesses, individuals, and enterprises that require remote notarial services.
The process involves the notary public and the signer meeting on a virtual platform where the signer's identity is verified, usually with a government-issued ID and knowledge-based authentication questions. Once the identity is verified, the signer electronically signs the document while the notary witnesses the process. The notary then electronically stamps and signs the document. This process is captured on video, and a record of the notarization is kept.
Notarize's platform is designed to be compliant with laws that allow for remote online notarization, and it can facilitate notarizations for various types of documents including deeds, power of attorney documents, trusts, and more.
