Trusted by millions of Americans for online notarization

With online notarization, your customers no longer need to drive across town to find a notary. Upload a document, prove your identity, and meet with an online notary instantly.

1. Request a notarization

Email a document from the Proof platform, trigger a request through our API, or have your customer upload a PDF or scan a paper document to start the notarization process.

2. Your customer tests their device

Proof will ask your customer for access to their camera and microphone, and will test the functionality of both. The platform automatically checks their internet strength to ensure strong call quality. Your customers can notarize documents on desktop, mobile, or a tablet.

3. Your customer verifies their identity

Proof uses identity verification technologies required by law to ensure a secure transaction. Your customer will answer a few questions about their past (knowledge-based authentication), take photos of their ID (credential analysis), and we'll confirm their identity in seconds.

4. Your customer connects with a notary on a video call

Notaries are available 24/7 and typically connect with signers in less than a second. With Proof, you can use one of the thousands of notaries on the Notarize Network, or you can use your in-house employee notaries.

5. Access and download completed documents

You and your customer will have immediate access to the completed documents. You both can return to the Proof platform any time to access past documents and upload new ones.
