For traditional notarizations, the signer must be physically present before the notary. This presence allows the notary to perform essential duties like verifying the signer’s identity and assessing their understanding and willingness to sign the document. However, Remote Online Notarization (RON) has become a viable alternative, especially amidst increasing digital interactions. In RON, notarization takes place over a secure digital platform that complies with state laws, where both parties use audio-visual communication. This technology ensures that the notary can perform all traditional duties, including identity verification through knowledge-based authentication and credential analysis, in a remote setting. RON is particularly useful for clients who are unable to be physically present due to logistical challenges.
