Company name

I am curious to know why company names are not required in the job postings unless the client specifically names the company in the details. I like to research information before beginning a contract. I know I can ask the client once the proposal becomes active, but it would be nice to research before I even submit a proposal. 



Hi Adrienne, 


Company name or personal detail is not allowed. With the help of Company name, one can contact outside UpWork. You are not allowed to share a personal detail or company name until the client asks for it, or he initiates chat. 


Best Regards




The client may also not have a company.

And, sadly, scammers use the names of real companies.
