Is it safe to get a document notarized online?

January 27, 2023


Many signers seeking online notarization have asked how safe it is to provide personal information and documents online.  Florida has laws in place to ensure that remote online notarization can be conducted safely.  A Florida Notary Public conducting an online notarization is required to have an online notarization platform.  These platforms have specific guidelines to encrypt and secure signers confidential information. Additionally, there are rules in place to keep these platform providers from sharing your information for advertising purposes. 

Please note, that if you are submitting a document for an online notarization directly to a Florida Notary Public by email, this may not be a secure way to get the document to the notary.  We encourage you to ask your notary the most secure way to email them the documents for online notarization.
