Why is NotaryLive the Best Online Notary Service for Notaries?


By NotaryLive Staff

Published on 09/21/2021

As more states adopt remote online notarization laws, the number of notaries taking advantage of online notarization services is increasing. Many notaries are looking for the best virtual notary service to use, and we are committed to making the decision easy for officially registered notaries and those looking to become registered. 

Here’s why we believe NotaryLive is the best platform for notaries: 

Ease of Use

To make the notarization process as convenient as possible for our customers, we have streamlined our process with NotaryLive. Online notary services offer notaries greater flexibility than in-person notarization, and NotaryLive has further optimized its model to make the process even easier. Our clients simply need to upload their documents, verify their identity, connect with a notary via webcam, and download their notarized documents. 

On average, notarizing documents online through NotaryLive takes about 10 minutes.

We have refined the process to make it simple and straightforward for anyone to begin using our service.

Security & Peace of Mind

Even the very best notaries can make mistakes when notarizing in person. However, with remote online notarization, it’s easier to stay mistake-free thanks to the improved security that comes with online notarization. Unlike traditional notaries, remote online notaries provide their notarial services online through an audio/video feed using a computer or mobile device - which means that these sessions are recorded in the case of a dispute where the transaction must be verified. On top of those benefits, NotaryLive uses additional security measures to verify each signer's identity beyond the steps that most in-person notaries would normally take. This provides peace of mind for both the notarization client and the notary.

NotaryLive is also Certified MISMO Compliant which demonstrates MISMO’s confidence in our process. For more information on our MISMO certification, check out this blog.
