Not all documents can be notarized online; it depends on the laws of your state and the type of document. However, where allowed, online notarization involves using a secure platform where the signer and the notary meet via video call. During this process, the notary verifies the signer’s identity, witnesses the document’s signing in real-time, and then electronically seals and signs the document. Online notarization provides a convenient, secure, and legally binding alternative to traditional in-person notarization, accommodating the need for notary services in a digital age.
