After you log into your new YouHodler account, you'll be brought to a Profile page. Your main priority is to verify your identity. You cannot take out a loan without verifying yourself. Fortunately, the process is quick and easy.
Once you get into your profile, go to Profile section. Click on the Verify button to start your identity confirmation.
Step 1. Identity Document
On the first step, you will be asked to choose your ID type and upload the front and backside (if you choose Drivers License or ID Card) or single scan (if you choose Passport).
Make sure the quality of pictures is good enough and all document's optical security features are clearly visible.
Make sure that the chosen document meet the following requirements:

Step 2. Selfie with a document
On this step, you need to upload a selfie holding your chosen ID (submitted previously). You can capture the selfie using your computer webcam (if you have a high-quality webcam). We suggest taking it with a good camera smartphone for еруbest results.
Make sure that you follow the steps below while taking a photo:

- No headwear and no eyewear are allowed on the photo.
Step 3. Personal Information
