Verifying your Identity for your Remote Online Notary Session.

Do you have a document you need notarized and would like to utilize our eNotarizations or RON (Remote Online Notary) Session?

It’s easy – 100% Online and 110% Convenient!

The first steps in your Remote Online Notary session are to get “Verified”. This involves answering 5 questions and verifying your ID. The short 2-minute video below explains the whole process!

How Virtual Notaries Use Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA)

If you’re scheduled for a remote online notary session, you’ll need to verify your identity using KBA. This process is designed to ensure that only the person who is scheduled for the session can access it, and that the person providing the identity information is the owner of the identity. In order to pass, the principal must answer at least 80% of the questions correctly.

If the principal fails their first attempt, they may retake the quiz once within 24 hours. If the principal fails a second attempt, they are prohibited from retrying with the same notary for at least 24 hours. 

How Virtual Notaries Use Identity Verification

If you’re using a Mobile Notary to notarize your documents remotely, you’ll need to complete the Identity Verification service to verify your identity. This is the process of verifying that the person who is trying to access a service is who they say they are.

There are many types of ID’s you can use but the most common method is by using government-issued identity documents. This could be a driver’s license or passport.

By using facial recognition software, Mobile Notaries can quickly and easily verify that the person on the other end of the line is who they say they are.
