Can you please explain to me why I need to verify my identity again? I mean I’m all for tight security, but I already did this years ago at Elance? This sounds exactly like a scam, which I realize it is not because I see the notification when I log on. I’ve been a consistent user for years with no security issues so it seems a waste of your time and my time. Unless there has been some suspected security breach...?
Just don’t get it in AZ
I'm sorry you feel this way about our verification request. We don't target any specific freelancers or a group of freelancers when requesting verification. The goal is to verify all freelancer profiles on the marketplace.
Please, refer to this ticket for more information regarding the verification process, where our team already shared tips about the verification process. Use the link provided in the ticket and our agent will guide you through the process!
Please don't get me wrong, it’s not that it is difficult (other than me having to get off my lazy a** and find the video camera).
I was just asking WHY this is necessary? I mean if it is simply a routine safety measure to re-verify someone - OK I guess I get it. And if this is the case, then say so. The way it reads now, it sounds like it has never been done before.
For example, you could day something like, "Upwork security procedures requires all users to periodically re-verify their accounts. This is for your online safety, etc..”
