Uploading ID and Biometrics Walk Through: BlueNotary

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:

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.

5. 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.

You will be given a prompt to redo if unsuccessful. If you are finished and passed (which occurs 99% of the time), you will be prompted to go back on your original device to proceed with the notarization.
