A Remote Online Notarization (RON) allows anyone to connect with a qualified notary public online 24/7 to have documents signed and notarized from anywhere in the world. Bilingual Notary Network offers a network of certified signing agents that can deliver online notarizations in the growing number of states that allow RONs. We leverage multiple technology platforms to help deliver the best experience for the signer and our clients.
In a RON, a signer appears before the notary at the time of the notarization in a video call over the internet instead of being physically present in the same room. RONs are also sometimes called a webcam notarization or online notarization.
Contrary to popular belief, RONs are actually more secure than traditional notarizations because they provide three ways to verify identity instead of the one relied on in traditional notarizations.
Only two things are required for a RON in states in which they are legal: an underwriter who will insure the transaction and a county clerk that accepts eRecorded documents. For the consumer, nothing is needed but a Social Security Number, a recent address and a standard laptop or computer with a webcam.
