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.

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...


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

Also can you guys for once try focusing on helping the freelancer here, rather than asking questions and giving no solution.

Hi Anduena,

 

Hi Anduena, 

 

As suggested, please submit the government-issued documents that you have, and if there are any issues, the team will reach out to you directly.


Please follow up Avery's instructions and upload your government-issued document as it is, once you do, our team will follow up with you directly and guide you further thought this process. 

 

Thank you!

I cannot proceed with the process because it requires to choose the country and I cannot do that, how am I supposed to choose another country and continue? Isn`t that ilegal?

Two part question:

 

1. My ID is not going to match my account here on Upwork. My ID has my home address but my Upwork account is linked to my checking account which has my POBox address. How will this affect me getting verified?

 

2. My ID has my middle name. My Upwork account and my checking account does NOT have my middle name. I don't want my Upwork account to show my middle name. So by provding my ID, am I going to be forced to show my middle name here? Is this going to affect getting verified? This could be a deal breaker for me. I don't want my middle name on here.
