Biometrics Step By Step:

You're about to do your first virtual notarization. Congrats!

Biometrics is a process of gathering information in order to verify your identity. This is done through answering some questions, uploading your ID and a face scan.

Here's what to expect:

1. Beginning Screen

You will come to a screen that says Getting Started

Click the button that says BEGIN VERIFYING.

2. Country Choice


Pick which country your ID is from.

3. Choose ID Type

ID verification choice

Choose which ID you are using. I recommend using either a US Driver License/ID Card or a passport. If choosing passport, it can be from any country.

4. Upload ID Front

If you are on your laptop choose CONTINUE ON ANOTHER DEVICE to send to your phone. Most webcams take blurry pictures that might not work for the verification process or be clear enough for me to read.

If you are on your phone just click the camera button in blue.

4. Continue On Another Device


At this point you will use your phone to take a picture of the front of you ID. After that is complete, it will redirect you to go back on whatever device you are using to complete the notarization.

You will be guided through a face scan where you will be asked to move your face from right to left.

Please be sure to be in a well lit area, and you may have to take off any hats or glasses.

I look forward to meeting with you virtually soon!

Give me a call or text if you run into any issues at 239-910-7248.

Whatsapp is preferred if international.

Don't take our words for it, hear from our clients

Katie went above and beyond for me to notarize my divorce paperwork. She is very professional and accommodating. I would definitely recommend her for all your notary needs.

Michael H.

My loan signing went incredibly smoothly. Everything was notarized, not one error, which often happens in a loan closing. Very pleased.

Kenny B.

I had no idea that this kind of service existed, but I am so glad I did...Katie made the whole process very easy. I really like the fact that she can provide virtual services so I don't have to drive across town or coordinate schedules.
