Hi Daniel,


I checked and it looks like you have already changed your country to Argentina. You may continue your profile and submit it for review. If you need any help, please let us know. Thanks!

I am trying to sign up but i accidentally signed up in USA when I am actually living in Spain. It won’t let me activate my profile without getting a text code first, but the phone number only allows me to enter a phone number from the USA and now I only have a Spanish number. Please help.

Hi there,


This is the second time I'm making this request: my country is locked as Thailand, but I am a U.S. resident and created my account in the U.S. Could Upwork please change my country?


Given how many people are having this issue, perhaps Upwork should consider looking at the functionality here.

Hi Gwen,


I apologize for the inconvenience this caused. Your Country was updated to the US, please update the rest of your profile information.


Thank you!

Interestingly, the country is set to US but the time is way off.

Despite the fact that I am in Zimbabwe, Zambia was the country automatically inserted into my form and I could not change it. Hence the country and city on my profile is wrong.
