Legally and securely notarize any document in minutes from your iPhone or iPad.
Notarize serves every American worldwide. Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—even during holidays. Average wait time is less than one minute.
Traveling abroad and need a document notarized? Can’t find a notary near you? Have a time-sensitive request after business hours? Say hello to Notarize.
How it works: Upload or scan your documents. Next, take a picture of your license or passport and answer a few security questions - this is how we verify your identity. Then connect with a licensed Virginia electronic notary via an audio/video call to sign and notarize your document. Once your document is notarized, you can download, email, and access the file in the app at any time.
Notarize also accepts documents that require more than one signer.
Notarize agents are held to the highest standards and have completed training, undergone background checks, and independently hold insurance in accordance with notary industry best practices. All Notarize agents are electronic notaries located in Virginia.
Are online notarizations legal? YES. We’re able to provide this service thanks to Virginia Senate Bill 827 and House Bill 2318, which were passed in 2011, enabling Virginia-based notaries to perform electronic notarizations online. The service is available to any US citizen, even those traveling abroad, due to the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the U.S. Constitution as well as laws in every state that explicitly accept out-of-state notarizations.
Simply download the app to legally notarize any document, anytime, anywhere.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app–easiest experience ever and a real life saver.
Let me tell you what happened: I was out of the country and needed a document notarized. Not sure if this was even possible, I tried googling the problem and found Notarize. What a joy to use: I easily scanned the document with my phone and connected to a friendly, professional notary. I signed the document, she notarized it, and for just 25$ my problem had been solved; a small price to pay for this level of flexibility and convenience.
I was immediately able to access a copy of my document–I could view it in the app and I could download or email it for further distribution. I’ll be sure to use Notarize for all my future notarizations!
Needed a notary on short notice and getting my spouse and I and two witnesses to an office somewhere during business hours wasn’t possible. Notary app let us get it done at 11pm in our home. Price is reasonable. Recommend using an iPad with an Apple Pencil (or stylus) as signing with finger on iPhone was challenging. I’ll remember that for next time! Also, witnesses had to hold their IDs up for a long time while notary asked them to move it around to find certain info. During that process we couldn’t see an image of what the notary could see so it was pretty challenging and time-consuming. Still, didn’t have to leave the house! Thumbs up.
Good concept, poor execution - did not work
Loved the idea when I read about it and when I needed notarization overnight for a consulate application. Went through the steps, twice. However, both times the document generated both times was incorrectly annotated and unusable.
They gave me my money back, but with an hour of effort spent and multiple confusing chats to get my money back, the eventual 10 minute notarization at UPS next morning was still the much better, easier and cheaper option!
Stay away until they fix their issues!
