Understanding Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA) for Remote Online Notarization

Updated: Jun 12, 2023

In today's fast-paced digital world, remote online notarization has become a convenient and secure option for individuals seeking notarization services. As part of this process, Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA) plays a crucial role in verifying the identities and ensuring secure transactions.

Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA), commonly known as KBA, is a security measure used during remote online notarization. Its purpose is to verify the identity of individuals by asking a series of personal questions that only they should know the answers to. KBA acts as an additional layer of protection against identity fraud and helps maintain the integrity of the notarization process.

During a remote online notarization session, the notary will initiate the KBA process to confirm your identity. You will be presented with a set of questions related to your personal information, such as previous addresses, or other details specific to you. It is crucial to answer these questions accurately and to the best of your ability. Rest assured that your answers will remain confidential, as notaries and the platform follow strict data protections and privacy policies.

By confirming your identity through KBA, remote online notarization ensures that the person seeking notarization is the right signer, safeguarding the interests of all parties involved in the transaction.
