Hello, I am more than 5 years old upwork freelance. Is ID proof submission is necessary for all acouunts on upwork ?

As I asked my some friends who are upwork worker and they said that they are not asked for id proof. and one of them is saying that he had already submitted id proof last year. As I remembered I submitted a proposal approx 1-2 month before, at that time upwork did not asked for id

Hi, well this is only needed if upwork asked for it. it happened to me when i changed my full name then given my ID to them and everything is fine now. bellow is some solution.



Possible reasons Upwork might require you to verify your identity include:

  • To determine ownership of duplicate accounts
  • To determine ownership of linked accounts
  • To assist you in resuming your account
  • To determine ownership of accounts showing suspicious or high risk activity
  • Know Your Customer (KYC) program compliance
  • Any other reason that Upwork deems appropriate, including random checks to maintain the integrity of the marketplace
