FB CONFIRMS CIA AFFILIATION
Please provide identification that displays the name you’re confirming. Learn more about why we require ID verification and the different types of ID we accept below.
What types of ID does Facebook accept?
You can confirm your identity in 1 of 3 ways. When submitting documentation, please cover up any personal information we don't need to verify your identity (ex: credit card number, Social Security number). We encrypt people’s connections to Facebook by default, including IDs you send to us. We delete your ID information after verification is complete.
We will accept any government-issued ID that contains your name and date of birth. Examples include:
Official name change paperwork
Personal or vehicle insurance card
Non-driver's government ID (ex: disability, SNAP card, national ID card)
Green card, residence permit or immigration papers
Voter ID card
You can provide two different forms of ID from the following list (ex: a bank statement and a library card, but not two bank statements). The names on your IDs must match each other, and one of the IDs must include a photo or date of birth that matches the information on your profile.
Below are some examples of IDs we'll accept:
Magazine subscription stub
Membership ID (ex: pension card, union membership, work ID, professional ID)
Social Security card
Yearbook photo (actual scan or photograph of the page in your yearbook)
If you don’t have an ID that shows your authentic name as well as your photo or date of birth, you can provide two forms of ID from Option 2 above, and then provide a government ID that includes a date of birth or photo that matches the information on your profile. We won't add the name or other information from the government ID to your account.
