I don't have the option to verify my identity in my profile settings. Is it because my account is new? My profile just got approved, so I don't understand. I'm talking about uploading a photo ID and doing the video chat so that I have the blue icon next to my name.

Hey,
Go to the "setting" of your account. And find there "Identity Verification". There you will get the way to verify your account.
or you can try this link: https://www.upwork.com/ab/identity-verification/

Is anyone else uncomfortable with uploaded an official government ID? Can I blur the ID number? With identity theft running rampant this makes me nervous...

Hi Louise,

 

Rest assured access to the information you provide during identity verification is handled by Upwork agents who have passed strict background checks and our secure, third-party vendor’s automated checks. We do not share or sell any of the information you submit to us. After 30 days, the information you submit to verify your identity is deleted. Thank you.

I agree 100%. I don´t like to upload my ID card.
I just withdraw all my money in my Upwork account. i don´t know if i´ll make the verification.
Verification, why? i don´t know my clients and that is not a problem.
Our work is our verification

Hello, 

 

I contacted Upwork 2 days ago about my problem, that I have time only until the 14th to get my verfication badge and I cannot proceed with the process because my country is not in the list. 

 

Can you please help me out? 

 

Thank you,

Anduena
