Hi Andrew,


Please start typing your address in the field that says "Start Typing your Address" and chose one of the drop-down suggestions. This should auto populate each field along with the city and allow you to submit your application for a review. If you experience any problems again, let me know. Thank you.

Hi guys, there is no clear message what is wrong with my profile:
I have only this message:

We've hidden your profile because it does not meet the following Upwork guidelines. You will not be able to submit proposals until these issues are fixed. 

Can somebody help me?

re: "hi it's been more than 48 hours now, and my account still didn't approved. is that normal ?"



This is normal.

48 hours is NOT how long it takes for an account to be approved.

48 hours is a goal that somebody once set for how long they would like it to take, and then somebody else wrote that goal into a message that is displayed to prospective new freelancers.


It's the weekend. Quite likely nobody is working on this over the weekend.


It might take 2 business days, not 48 hours. It might take a week. Be patient.
