What is an electronic/online notarization?

The electronic notarization is a process where a certified, approved for Electronic Notarization notary affixes electronic notary signature and seal information to an electronic document (such as a PDF file). Once affixed to the electronic document, the document is rendered tamper evident such that unauthorized attempts to alter the document will be evident to relying parties.

An Electronic Notary may electronically notarize a document in person or online using audio-video conference technology
