It’s no secret that one bad selfie can ruin your day. However, we're talking about something more serious than losing a couple of right swipes on a dating app. The inability to pass remote identity proofing can cost you anything from a gaming account to an important online transaction.
Below you will find short and fun instructions that will help you to prove your ID ownership, without putting in heaps of time and effort.
Stay In Focus
If you are asked to take a photo of yourself holding your proof of identity and (possibly) a piece of paper with the current date, first of all, make sure that your ID, date, and face are fully visible and in focus.
Here are a few simple tips that can help:
- Avoid dark rooms and strong background light
- Go for a smartphone camera and not a webcam, if you can choose
- Clean the camera’s lens
- Take a photo with a steady hand or use a tripod
Use the ID documents in which you resemble your current self the most.
Remove hats, headphones, glasses, and other things that can make you harder to recognize.
One Hand - One Piece
If you are required to take a photo of yourself holding the proof of identity and a piece of paper with the current date, please hold each by the corner making the data perfectly visible. Don’t let the documents overlap.
