I'm new to Upwork and have two questions:
1. How do I know if I'm approved or not?
2. I would like to change my username and email but so far I figured out that I can't do that as long as I'm logged in using Google sign-in. How can I change that?
Log in -> Settings -> Connected Services .. doesn't work. It just stays on Password and Security.
Is this because of Google Sign-in or because my profile is not approved? Is there another option?
Thanks for replying and happy new year.

This is a rampant issue with Upwork. It won't let you do numerous things until you enable that security feature. It does not tell you this, it simply keeps dumping you there hoping you will magically figure it out. Once you set this up, it should behave better. Good luck.
