I created this account while my VPN was on in which its location was in United States, on realising that my location was in the US at the next page, I tried to go back to change the location after switching off the VPN but I can't change my location because in the last step of create profile, I'm being told to enter my US phone number, which I do not have.
How do I change the location.?
Close the account and start again from Step 1 .
You'll need to get Upwork's help to change your location.
re: "Close the account and start again from Step 1"
No, don't create a new account. Fix the current account.
Often freelancers can simply tell the Forum moderator what their country SHOULD be, and get that changed quickly.
What country do you live in?
I signed up for upwork while in my country Nigeria. I also verified my upwork account using my nigeria documents.
I am relocating to Australia to further my studies.
I don't want to manually change my location since it could trigger verification again.
Please kindly assist me.
Once you`ve relocated feel free to update your address to reflect your new location. If any additional verifications are needed, our team will reach out to you via ticket with more details. Thank you.
