I need to change my country - I am working in Australia but accidentally set my country as the United States as that is where I am from. 


Can someone reset my account so that I am able to update the country and continue setting up my profile?

Hi Valeria,

I hope you're well.

I have selected the US by mistake (instead of ALgeria) and am currently facing the same issue. I will appreciate your help.

Hello Valeria, 

I am having a similar issue that some people have reported on here regarding the wrong location while creating a profile. My current location is  Flagstaff, AZ, USA. However, the profile reports my home country that I visited while I started creating the Upwork profile. Would it be possible to have the location corrected to my current one in the US? I really appreciate the help!

Hi Laxmi, 

I recently updated your country from United States to India. You should be able to update your address accordingly.
