What ended up happening? Did Upwork give you an extension?

Everytime I try to start a video chat to verify my identity it refreshes to the job board page. It also does this when I try to go to the Help link in the site's footer. No idea why I keep getting redirected. I've tried multiple browsers.

Hi Rob, 

Before I proceed, I wanted to check if the issue persists if you clear your cookies, or used a different browser?

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.

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:

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...
