Notarize — a service offered by Proof — is the industry leading solution for online notarization. Embedded within the service is the byproduct of eight years worth of work as our namesake, the Notarize NetworkSM. The Network is made up of thousands of carefully selected notaries who have not only been extensively vetted and trained, but accomplished (and respected) experts across the industry.

Forms notarized online are as legally valid as one notarized via traditional paper-based notarization. Online notarizations are valid and enforceable in every state with their validity determined by applying the law of the notary’s commissioning state. As public officials of their state, notaries must perform notarizations in compliance with state law. Every state recognizes properly performed notarizations of other states.
