Individual Verification

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have temporarily paused Individual Verification to focus our reviewers on efforts that help keep people informed and safe. We know this review step is important and will resume it as soon as we can. Visit our blog post to learn more about this issue.

Individual verification is a process that allows us to verify your identity as an individual as opposed to a business, which we require if your app will be accessing sensitive data. If you are a non-business developer and your app has been approved for permissions and features related to the products below, you will receive an alert in your App Dashboard Inbox, giving you the option to complete individual verification instead of business verification.

If you are given the option to complete Individual Verification, you will be asked to:

  1. Provide an email address where you can receive, review, and submit a contract.
  2. Upload an image copy of an ID or document that satisfies these requirements.

Individual Verification Process

  1. Find the verification settings using one of these methods:
    • Use the link in your App Dashboard Inbox alert: Go to your App Dashboard's Settings > Basic tab, click Go to Verification.
  2. On the menu bar, click Individual Verification.

Your app will be prevented from using any approved permissions and features related to the following products, while in Live mode, until you complete the individual verification process.

Limitations

  • If you are business developer and your app will be used by other businesses, you cannot complete Individual Verification.
  • The following products offer limited functionality if you have verified your identity as an individual:

Once you submit for individual verification, these limitations take effect immediately, even if your submission is rejected.
