I google searched two freelancer profile pics tonight. They came up as descriptions and not names so this should mean they are violating the ToS right? Or am I wrong?

Yes, Mariska. A user's Upwork profile picture must be consistent with a government issued ID picture. Please report these profile images to our support team, or you can share them with me so that I can report them to the team.

Mariska, do you mean that Google image search is returning a "best guess for this image" result of something like "face" or "glasses" or something? I've noticed that too. For instance, if I do a search on your photo I get "Best guess for this image: blond". Then, further down the page, in the "Pages that include matching images", I start seeing your photo on various pages. I don't think it really means there's a problem unless you see the "pages that include matching images" has for example half a dozen linkedin profiles with the same image, or something like that.

 

Edited to add: searching for my image I get the "best guess" result of "person". That's very reassuring, Google...

 And I found another freelancer pic just now with a photo that doesn't match any of the sites listed under matching photos.. I'm getting tired of this image searching and get to work. lol.
