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.
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:
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.
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.
