What is NotaryLive? NotaryLive is the remote online notarization (RON) platform that makes notarizing documents easy for notaries, businesses, or anyone who needs their document notarized! Gone are the days of trying to get in contact with an in-person notary and wasting time traveling to a notary in your area or organizing a meeting. Those days, like the days of the carrier pigeon, are over — thanks to the development of remote online notarization. And NotaryLive is the very best online notarization platform out there.

What Is Remote Online Notarization?

Online notarization is the modern way to get your document notarized. Unlike traditional notarization, which is performed in person, online notarization is conducted online. This means that rather than having to meet a Notary in person at the same physical location, the notarization business can be transacted from the convenience of your computer or mobile device.

Online notarization is also sometimes referred to as – remote notarization, webcam notarization, virtual notarization, or remote online notarization (RON). With online notarization, the signer and Notary use audio/visual technology to meet remotely to complete the remote notarization transaction over the Internet rather than being physically in the same room.
