Stavvy is excited to announce new enhancements to the signer verification process for remote online notarization (RON) meetings, designed to lower the risk of identity fraud and provide notaries with a more comprehensive method for assessing a signer's identity. This article provides resources to help you and your organization prepare for the upcoming release on Tuesday, March 5, 2024.
With these enhancements, Stavvy delivers a safer and more secure signer verification protocol compliant with NIST IL2 standards. This protocol integrates additional measures for verifying identity, allowing notaries to make more informed decisions by leveraging a more comprehensive range of data to supplement their professional expertise.
Highlights of these additional measures include:
- Multi-factor authentication (MFA) for signers through text or phone call
- Digital biometric comparison of the photo ID with a selfie that the signer takes during the ID upload process
- Social Security Number (SSN) validation checks to ensure authenticity
- Geolocation tracking of the signer's IP address to identify and flag potential risk
Stavvy hosted a webinar recently detailing these enhancements and how they impact your notarization process. Key highlights include:
- An overview of changes to the signer and notary user experience
- An end-to-end signer verification demonstration
- Q&A with attendees
