How Do I Verify My Local Bitcoin Account?

When you first create a LocalBitcoins account, you’ll need to verify your phone number and email address. After that, you can choose to verify your identity with a government-issued ID.

This isn’t required, but it will allow you to buy and sell bitcoins with fewer limits.

To verify your phone number, LocalBitcoins will send you a code via SMS. Enter this code into the verification field and click “Verify Phone Number”.

NOTE: WARNING: Before verifying your Local Bitcoin Account, be aware that you may be subject to identity verification processes. This could involve providing personal information such as a copy of your passport or driver’s license, proof of residence, and sometimes proof of income. Additionally, you should be aware that verifying your Local Bitcoin Account could take some time and may require additional documentation from you.

To verify your email address, LocalBitcoins will send you a verification link. Click this link and you’ll be taken to a page confirming that your email address has been verified.

If you choose to verify your identity with an ID, you’ll need to take a photo of yourself holding the ID. Make sure that the photo is clear and that all four corners of the ID are visible.

Once you’ve taken the photo, upload it to LocalBitcoins and click “Submit for Verification”.

LocalBitcoins will review your submission and may request additional information if needed. Once your identity has been verified, you’ll be able to buy and sell bitcoins with fewer limits on the site.
