Notarize App turns your iPhone into a medium to get notarized!

On the road? Need to get notarized in a hurry? Well now you can! If you have an iPhone and the notarize app, you can just get notarized over the phone. Eliminate the hassle of trying to find a Notary at the last minute. This procedure has been legal in Virginia since 2011. Just go to your App store and get the notarize app today! You can be notarized using your phone in any of the 50 states plus Washington DC.

Virginia is trying to be modern which is probably why they allow this. However, the lack of personal appearance ruins the whole point of requiring a notary!

Just upload your document using email, cloud or dropbox, or other app with similar capabilities and then prove your identity by taking a photo of your ID. Never mind that 100 signing companies also have a photo of your ID and can claim to be you! Then, you can be connected on video “face to face” (or non-face to non-face) and then the notarization will take place. There is a $25 fee per notarization and the app is FREE.

Next year they will probably come out with the Marriage App, where you can marry a nice Russian girl (no questions asked). The app will process immigration paperwork and even find a flight for your new honey to board to come to the United States. If you don’t like her, just use the new app called SwapWyfe and get a new Russian beauty (who looks good without make up).

  1. This app is canibalizing the industry. They are taking work away from notaries across the country by relying on a gimmick that’s not 100% legal. Beware!

  2. Just used my “is this a joke” app and the answer is “identified as such”.

  4. The vulture capitalist behind that app took his dog-and-pony show to the big dogs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the National association of Secretaries of State and Notary Public Administrators, etc) and sold them on their app. Now, several states allow it and it’s going to kill the NSA business. Within 5 years, there’s either going to be federal court cases ruling that it’s illegal or the NSA business will all be done by those in whichever state has the lowest maximum fees. It’s going to turn what was a livelihood for thousands of people scattered across the country into a few call centers in one or two states. All that will be left for honest notaries is a bit of GNW involving those who aren’t tech savvy or who don’t have access to the internet.

    Never mind tgat anything done on the web can be hacked. Never mind that a photo or video of an i.d. is not the actual i.d. Never mind that “appearance” via webcam is not personal appearance and any notary who “signs” a notary certificate that says they appeared when they were (maybe) on a webcam has just lied about the circumstances.

    Then the web will crash or be shut down as part of the ongoing climate change destruction and all those webcam notarization will be gone. Without any paper records, it’s going to be a huge mess.
