The company was founded in 2015.[2]

History[edit]

Notarize was founded in 2015 in Arlington, Virginia by Pat Kinsel and Adam Pase.[2]Kinsel was inspired to start Notarize when he had difficulty notarizing documents.[3]

In February 2016, the company launched its smartphone app on iTunes, integrating live video with computer imaging technology and a software-based forensic analysis for user identification.[4]

By June 2017, the company had reportedly done 10,000 notarizations worldwide.[5] In July, the company completed the United State's first online mortgage closing, with United Wholesale Mortgage and Freddie Mac.[1]

In October, the company partnered with online startup Trust & Will to create fully digital online wills and trust documents in Nevada and Indiana.[6]

By March 2020, the company reported that it was expecting to notarize $100 Billion in transactions, up from $10 Billion in 2019.[7]

In October, Notarize signed a deal with document management company Adobe to integrate Notarize’s remote online notarization (RON) capability into the Adobe Sign e-signature platform.[8] In November, Notarize's online notary video service was used by Pennsylvania postal worker Richard Hopkins for a sworn affidavit alleging voter fraud, a claim that was later recanted.[9]
