I am real –
Introducing Verified IDs

We are running a lot of top-notch challenges for international clients that are strictly confidential. This means that clients put a lot of trust in our as well as your hands.

To provide you with more and more of great projects in the future we are constantly improving our platform and services.

The last few months we worked hard to make jovoto an even more secure and trusted environment. An important step for us is to introduce verified IDs: You can now verify your ID.

A Simple Process

Just upload an image of a photo ID that shows your full name and a picture of yourself. We will check it to prove that this matches your contact information you provided in your profile. Then you will get a confirmation email, as well as the new “Verified ID” badge.

Verify your ID

We’ve made a video to walk you through the process and show you how easy it really is:

 

The Time Schedule

Please verify your ID as soon as possible. This new feature is going to be deployed next Friday, 13th of February. In a couple of weeks you need your profile to be verified to enter NDA projects.

 

Verified ID centered

Of course the system is smart and will ask you again, if you forgot to verify your account in the moment you want to enter an NDA project.

The Benefits

– More trust.
– With a verified ID you gain access to more (invited) projects.
– With a verified ID you can access NDA projects.
– With a verified ID you can claim your name.
– With a verified ID it is probably easier to find collaborators.

We are excited to do this next step into a more trusted, professional work environment for a global community and international clients.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    Will the real name and the photo of a user be visible for everyone or is it just visible for jovoto?

    Dear Lars,

    the ID you upload is of course just visible for our team to verify your account. Your real name will be visible if you click on “show my name publicly on the platform.”
    Here´s even more ifnormation and a screenshot for you:

    Cannot even find where to upload anything?

    Hi Gila,

    You simply go to Settings > Account and you upload it where it says “Verify your identity”.

    Cheers
    Diana

    I uploaded a pdf of a photo id, but after clicking “Save” got the error message: Your changes could not be saved, something was incorrect. But there was no indication of what was incorrect. Can you help me?

    I also can’t find this Settings > Account and “Verify your identity”. Where is it?

    THANX

    @Kamen P Thanks for getting in touch. When you are on http://www.jovoto.com on the top right side of your screen you see your name. If you hover with the mouse over your name, a menu list will open and there you will see “Settings”. Click on that, and if you scroll a bit down you will see a text that says “Verify your identity”. You can upload your ID picture there. I hope that helps. Let me know 🙂

    @Ned Wiley We are sorry for the error. Unfortunately uploading .pdfs doesn’t work, you would need to upload an image (i.e. jpeg, png, …).
    All the best,
    Diana

    I tried uploading a Postscript image (ps) but no luck. Can you tell me how to convert a pdf file to jpeg or png? I am unable to do this with Adobe.

    Hi Jesko, I design under my company. Will you still need my personal ID or just something to verify my company?

    What should i do if my user profile name doesnt match with my real name on my ID ??? plz guide thanks

    @Ned Wiley I will happily verify your account if you send me your username and the document at djianu@jovoto.com Thanks and have a great day!

    @Syed Unaiza Mateen

    Hi and very good question. The purpose of verified IDs is for us (other jovotans) and for clients to know that your identity is checked, that you are for real (just as our clients are) and this is not a fake account. It really gives everyone peace of mind 🙂

    Therefore, in your profile Settings you must introduce your real first and last names. We then check to see if they match your ID. If yes, we give you the “Verify ID” badge. After that you are free to use on jovoto either your real name or your username.

    Hope that helps,

    I would like to upload my picture ID, but the website will not allow me to- When I press upload-, nothing happens

    hello! how long do you need for these verify check? 🙂

    I think this is a difficult requirement to accomplish, as we all know about the issues on personal cyber security. I hope you guys can find ways to verify our identities in another way. maybe we can crowdstorm it ! !

    i didnt type the last line of my previous comment

    @Susan Bloomenstein – I think we managed to solve that right? 🙂

    //Olof

    @Miriam Blaschke – A day or two usually!

    @andrei419 – I understand your concern here! But your ID is not stored anywhere with us. You upload your ID and then we check if the name matches your ID and then we verify you and your image gets deleted automatically. Hope that makes you more secure!

    I also can’t find “Verify your identity” in the Setting where you can edit the Profile.
    Where can i find it?

    Coldent find a way to upload photo, how dose it work?

    Hi there,

    To verify is super easy.

    When you are on http://www.jovoto.com on the top right side of your screen you see your name. If you hover with the mouse over your name, a menu list will open and there you will see “Settings”. Click on “Settings”, and when you scroll a bit down you will see a text that says “Verify your identity”. You can upload your ID picture there.

    I hope that helps. If not, let me know. You can also email me directly at djianu@jovoto.com.

    Hugs to everyone!
    Diana
