Upwork doesn't ask me to verify my identity.

I've made on account on upwork but I still not receive any message to verify my account. I don't have any button or links to do that. why?

You haven't earned anything.

ID verification at the scale Upwork is doing it is stunningly expensive, and the vast majority (80 - over 90% depending on category) of new freelancers never win a single job or earn a single dollar, so there is little to no point ID verifying anyone until they have started earning money.

I know that some people could to verify their account before had any earnings. Their accounts are very similar to mine. I mean their account was filled 100% and that's all they'd done

Hi Katerina,

 

I checked and it doesn't look like you are required to complete any verification process at the moment.

 

The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification process in the future.

 

Thank you.
