A notary is a citizen who’s been deemed upstanding and trustworthy by the state. Their job is to witness the signing of documents and attest that the signer did it of their own volition.
For many years, this practice had to be done in-person, but in 2012, the Commonwealth of Virginia started to allow its notaries to witness signatures online through webcam technology and stamp documents with their official seal using an encrypted, digital signature.
Since 2012, people in all 50 states and abroad have had documents notarized online.
