What is ID verification?
ID verification ensures that you are who you claim to be. This is used within the Content Manager to protect contributors and customers against fraudulent content.
Who needs to complete ID verification?
ID verification is for all contributors and will only be required once.
When is ID verification required?
We recommend you complete ID verification after your first upload. Starting January 2022, Vecteezy will only be reviewing content from verified contributors.
Why should I verify my ID?
In addition to protecting contributors and customers against fraudulent content, contributors who verify their ID can receive more exposure, have their content reviewed faster, will have access to our Insights area, and are likely to have more files approved. Vecteezy will only be reviewing contributors who have verified their ID starting January 2022. If you have already verified your ID, no action is required.
What do I need to verify my ID?
To verify your ID, you will need a government ID and a webcam or phone camera
Is verifying my ID with Vecteezy safe?
Vecteezy partners with Persona, a trusted and verified identification software company as part of our ID verification process. Vecteezy does not store any personally identifiable information collected during the ID verification process. Instead, any personally identifiable information obtained during the ID verification process is safely and securely stored in Persona. Persona has the highest security standards, is GDPR and CCPA compliant, and is certified against the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield framework, further validating their secure data practices.
Why do you need a photo of me and what if I don’t want to share my photo ID with you?
With current technology, photos and photo IDs are the best reference to confirm an individual’s likeness.
