How do I get verifications?

To add verifications to your account, go to Edit Profile > Trust and Verification. Certain verifications (reviews and professional photography) cannot be added from this page.

Verifications include:

• Email address: confirm that you receive email notifications and messages.

• Phone number: ensure communication during your reservations will be a breeze.

• Offline ID: verify your identity using knowledge-based authentication or an ID scan.

 Online ID: verify your identity by connecting to Google, Facebook, or LinkedIn or by having pre-existing reviews.

• Reviews: build a reputation in the Airbnb community from your Reviews tab after completing reservations.

• Verified photos: apply for professional photography at your listing to accurately portray your space for guests.

Getting a Verified ID badge (a specific set of verifications) is the best way to help build trust in the Airbnb community. To do this, just click the Verify Me button on the Trust and Verification page.
