What are the benefits of becoming a verified user of Uphold?

We need to verify your identity to protect you from fraud and keep our community safe. It’s much harder for someone else to link your cards or bank accounts and steal money once you’re verified.


Today, we don’t make you verify your identity until you withdraw or send funds. If you want to trade larger amounts, you may need to verify your identity earlier.


If you have time, it’s better to verify your identity upfront because it adds a layer of security. We make a distinction between users who haven't verified their identity and those who have.
