Remote online notarization eliminate the need for both parties to be physically present. With this, it becomes possible for an individual who is signing with a two-way video-conference can be deemed as legally “appearing” which allows them the legal capacity and validates their signature without any additional requirements needed other than being visible on camera during each stage of the procedure Remote online notaries are an effective way for people who cannot be in the physical presence of their signers to still get legal documents signed.
Absent the notary’s personal knowledge of signers, they need to go through a process to verify their identity. The first step is confirming that photo ID and then going back with a few security questions.
The first part of the verification process is credential analysis. During this step, a signer’s government-issued photo ID (such as driver’s license) will be analyzed and confirmed by using third party technology to ensure its security features are intact while also confirming that it’s current or has been issued with proper authority.
To ensure that the person signing is who they say, there’s a series of several dynamically-generated questions about the signer from public records and other trusted proprietary data sources.
Examples of these types of questions include the following:
Each document to be signed is displayed on the device screens of the signer and online notary. When instructed by the notary, the signer applies their previously electronically-created signature to the document. Then, the notary uses their digital seal and signature and completes any applicable portions of the notary certificate). The final document has applied to it a digital signing certificate, which is unique to the online notary public. This digital certificate makes the final electronic document “tamper-evident” once applied. So any attempts to alter the tamper-evident document’s contents will be evident to any party accessing that document and its digital record.
