What is Verified ID?
We created the Verified ID process to build trust in our community and give you more information when you're deciding who to host or stay with on Airbnb.
What to Expect
Verified ID connects your Airbnb profile with other sources of information about you. While you're completing the Verified ID process, you might be asked to:
- Take a photo or upload an image of your government-issued ID, such as your driver's license or passport. Depending on where you live, you may have the option of answering a few questions about yourself instead.
- Connect another online profile to your Airbnb account, such as a Facebook, Google, or LinkedIn account.
- Upload an Airbnb profile photo and provide a phone number and email address.
Where to Start
First, make sure you have the latest version of your Internet browser installed. Then, visit airbnb.com/verify and click the Verify Me button. We'll guide you through each step.
If your host requires you to complete Verified ID, you'll be directed to complete the process right after you send your reservation request. You'll have 12 hours to complete it. If you need to come back later, go to airbnb.com/verify when you're ready and resume the process.
Earn the Verified ID Badge
When you've completed Verified ID, you'll earn a badge on your profile. Many hosts and guests look for this badge when deciding whether to host or stay with someone:
Hosts and guests alike tell us they find Verified ID useful when deciding who to interact with on Airbnb, but it's not an endorsement or guarantee of someone's identity.
