We understand that searching for a trusted RON provider can be quite intimidating. You are looking for a company that you are going to be trusting some of your most important documents with. We will outline some of the things to look for when searching for your go to Remote Online Notarization platform as an everyday consumer and as a business.
While researching your options, one of the single most important thing to look for in your RON provider is the level of security that they offer to protect your documents and personal information. Some RON providers are using older technologies like simple SSL Certificates to protect your data. I recommend going with a provider that utilizes state of the art blockchain technology to ensure all your data is encrypted with the highest level of security, don’t put your personal data at risk.
Make sure that whichever RON company you decide to go with has its full staff of notaries in house. The last thing you want to do is get online to get your document notarized and get connected with someone that is lounging on their couch in pajamas (trust me I’ve had the experience before). It helps to ensure all notary staff is held in house to keep a high standard of professionalism across the board.
If you are looking into Remote Online Notarization for your business, make sure that you ask the provider about their data privacy policies. You may also want to see how long they keep their audio/video logs on file, for example, here in Florida we are legally obligated to keep all records for a minimum of ten years giving you extra protection in the case of litigation. Also, you will want to look into the level of insurance your RON provider holds. For example, a standard RON provider is required to hold $250,000 in coverage, but a real estate transaction could be worth well north of $1M+ which is an enormous liability to not be covered.
