IPEN (In-Person Electronic Notarization Guide)

IPEN stands for in-person electronic notarizations, which are notarizations conducted in-person. This means that the signer must be physically present with the Notary at the time of the notarization. However, the documents are presented in a digital format and signed using an electronic signature, while the Notary applies an electronic seal and signature to complete the notarization process.

This whole process can take place on one account.

Supported devices include laptops, computers and Ipads.

Signers will not need to create their own unique login information, as it can all be done from the notary account.
