How Does it Work?

Here is a step-by-step breakdown of how a RON signing works:

  • You must provide us with a digital version (PDF) of the document that needs to be notarized and this may be sent to

    • Let us know the desired day and time you would like to complete RON transaction

  • We will review the document and prepare it for the notary appointment

  • You will receive an email from our trusted and secure 3rd party vendor, Secured Signing, to complete the following::

    • Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA). This is a series of questions based on your public records to verify and authenticate your identity

    • After passing the KBA questions, you will be asked to scan your valid government issued ID and a facial recognition

  • After all parties pass the KBA and facial recognition, you will be prompted to enter the virtual waiting room and the notary will grant you access to the video conference call

  • At this point the notary will walk you through the rest of the process and notarize your documents


Each person involved in the transactions must meet the following technical requirements:

  • A desktop computer, laptop, or table equipped with a microphone, speakers, and a camera

  • Latest version of Goolge Chrome, Safari or Firefox

  • iOS 11 or higher if using an IPhone or IPad

  • Fast and reliable high-speed broadband internet

  • What is an Remote Online Notary?
    Remote online notary is someone who has received a notary public commissioned by the state. Instead of meeting with someone in person, a remote online notary will meet with someone virtually. You will use video conferencing technology to meet with a notary public. Then, you will go through the same steps as you would if you were meeting with a notary public in person.
  • Do I have to be in Pennsylvania to use your remote services?
    No, you do not have to be in Pennsylvania to use virtual notary services. Instead, the notary is only allowed to notarize documents from his or her state. A notary is only allowed to notarize documents if he or she is in Pennsylvania and has been commissioned by the state. You can work with a Pennsylvania notary from just about anywhere.
  • How do you verify my identiy?
    A notary public and the system will be responsible for verifying the identification documents submitted. You will also have to answer a few questions before the session to make sure you are who you say you are.
