Hi Upwork team, i get message on my job feed regarding video call verification.
Currently, i don't have web cam installed on my dekstop PC.
If i don't do the video chat, will my account be banned?
If yes, then how long is the time limit so i can prepare to install the web cam.
Is there any other method like whatsapp video call or anything else?
Or you can ask some questions and i send an mp4 file answering those questions.
I have good reputable account and continuously making money on upwork.
I just don't want a silly mistake like that destroy my hard work to build reputation here on Upwork.
Please help me, it's not that easy to have a webcam installed on Linux Based Machine.

The verification process lasts only a couple of minutes and you'll need to communicate with out agent directly. Once you're ready, please use the verification link to initiate the process and our agent will follow up to guide you through the process.
Ryo, don't worry about this! I did the verification. It is easy. They just want to see your face and make sure it's really you.
They are to ask you any any hard questions. They only asked my for my name and address. It's only about verifying your identity. It's not a test or interview.
You don't need to install a webcam on your Linux computer.
It does not matter what computer you use for the verification. Go to a friend's house. Use someone's laptop. Go to an Internet cafe. Upwork doesn't care.
Please refer to the notification our team sent to you regarding verification process, when you are ready, use the verification link to initiate the process and follow our agent’s instructions to successfully finish the process.

I am having a similar issue, a message saying verification is required, but the link you display is dead. It is https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us?action=verify-profile and just sends you to the "search knowledgebase" page. Now how can I initiate that verification?
