Hello,

 

I am trying to make my account as freelancer where I have to upload profile picture.But I don't want to upload my picture. Is there anyway possible that I can make my account without uploading it.

I can provide you scanned image of my CNIC if you need any verification.

Thanks,

No, it's required.

 

Hi Monina,

 

Upworkโ€™s Terms of Use require that you accurately represent yourself. This includes having a profile picture that looks like you. It should be a close up image with a focus on your head and shoulders, and clearly show your full face. You can check this article for more information.

 

If you need to cover your face for religious purposes, we can add a religious exemption to your profile to allow you to upload a profile photo that covers your face. Please let us know if you would like us to do so.


Thank you.

Yes please. That would be a great help!!

Yes of course...I would be very grateful to you.

Hi Monina,

 

I went ahead and added the exemption on your profile, please try uploading your photo one more time.

Hi Ali, 

 

Could you please try now to upload your profile photo with the covered face? Let us know if you need any further assistance.

 

Thank you!

Hey Aleksandar, 

 

I'm currently building my profile, and it won't accept my picture since I have a mask on.  I'm a muslim and I wear a niqab (veil) to cover my face when out in public, hence the mask on my picture.

 

Could you please add a religious exemption on my profile so I may proceed with the rest of it? 

 

Thanks in advance. 

Hi Fatma,

 

You should now be able to upload your profile picture with a  veil.

 

Thank you,

Hi Maryam,

Yes. I don;t want to show my face.

So can i upload picture related to my skill?

 

Hi Maryam,

 

Kindly, refer to Bojan's answer and submit a request for religious profile picture exemption.

 

Thank you.

where I have to submit request?

Hi Maryam,

 

You can submit a request by clicking on this link.

 

Thank you.

re: "So can I upload picture related to my skill?"

 

No.

 

Receiving a religious exemption allowing you to not use a standard Upwork profile picture (which clearly shows your face) does not mean you can upload a picture related to your skill (such as a computer keyboard signifying "data entry").

I would like to submit a request for profile picture exemption due to religious reasons.Can you assist me in that.

Hi Noreen,

 

Could you please retry to upload your profile photo? Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you!

i don't want my photo on my profile. what's the other option. thanks. 

Hi Aamir,

 

Your profile picture should accurately reflect who you are, and it should look like you. It should be a close up image with a focus on your head and shoulders, and clearly show your full face. If you are required to cover your face and would like to request a religious exemption, our team would be happy to assist you with it. Could you please send us more information so that we can check?

 

Thank you.
