What is an online notary (RON)?


An online notary public is a commissioned notary public in the State of Texas who has the authority to perform a remote notarization using an audio-visual conference rather than having the individual physically appear before the notary at the time of the notarization. The notary must use a third party to perform identify proofing and credential analysis in order to identify the person for whom you are performing the notarization.


Online notaries public in Texas are governed by Subchapter C, Chapter 406 of the Texas Government Code and Title 1, Chapter 87 (PDF) of the Texas Administrative Code. Please note that Chapter 87 has been revised effective August 19, 2018.
