Why can't I verify my location?
If you can’t verify your location, we understand this can be EXTREMELY frustrating.
Most likely your server or IP address is outside of the geofence we’ve set (out of our hands). However, there can be many causes. This one can be tough to fix, but we have put together a detailed help article on it.
How can I change my location?
We first get your location from your Facebook profile, as you may have figured out. If your Facebook location was outdated, your DateID location may be incorrect. You can edit this in your Profile Settings, in the Facebook section. The same applies to your hometown.
Here’s how it looks on a phone.
Why can't I verify my drivers license or passport?
How do I upload/edit/delete photos?
To manage photos, go to your Profile Settings https://www.dateid.com/profile/edit.
Then, click on your profile photo to open your photo albums. Photos are organized by social media source. You may have to filter to find the one you want.
To delete, select the one you want to delete, and click on the trashcan icon in the lower right.
You can also upload photos directly to the album from your phone or computer. When looking at the thumbnail display, click the blue”upload photo” button at the bottom of the screen.
If you’re trying to get your photo verified, note that it will have to be a recent photo taken by your camera. You also have to upload it via Firefox or chrome. Safari does not work, as it strips the date away.
To save a photo as your profile photo, once you’ve selected the photo you want, hit “save”.
Why did my name change after creating an account?
This is a frustrating Facebook bug that we are actively trying to track down and squash. If it’s persistent for you, worst case is you create a new Facebook account for using DateID. If you do that, be sure to ask us to delete your old account, so that you do not have duplicate accounts. Sorry!
Can I create a DateID account without Facebook?
Sorry, no. You will need to use Facebook to sign up for DateID.
When you sign up for DateID, we need your name, location, gender, date of birth and a profile photo in order to verify you. Facebook is a quick-and-easy way to provide this information, and works great for most people.
If you’re in a small minority of people who do not use Facebook, we hope you will consider creating an account to signup for DateID. Just go to https://www.facebook.com.
How can I delete my account?
To delete your account, please complete this short form we’ll get it done within three business days.
You may be wondering why you can’t just delete your own profile. We’d prefer to have it that way too. Previously we allowed this, but it resulted in platform abuse. We had too many people deleting and creating profiles over and over, to get unlimited free credits.
Why can't I connect Instagram?
This is a bug that was recently caused by a change Instagram made. We are actively troubleshooting it and expect it to be resolved soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
How can I share my profile?
You can copy the link and then send it via text, email or right on a dating app.
Why are women rejecting my DateID profile?
If you’ve leveled up to Gold, DateID is the gold standard for dating verification. Everything else is a scam.
If anyone is rejecting it and saying you need any other kind of ID, such as a hookup ID, meetup ID, safe dating ID, or anything that sounds similar, we’re sorry to inform you that you’re being targeted by scammers.
Do not give anyone payment of any kind.

Why is there someone else with my name and info who isn't me?
DateID has hundreds of millions of records, internationally. Most of them are not actual DateID members. If you have a common name, there will potentially be dozens of profiles with your name.
If you are already a member, and you’ve found non-member profile that appears to be you, you can “claim” the profile. Here’s how:
- View the full profile, like you’re screening someone (your first 3 are free so you should not have to pay. If you’re out of freebies it will be $0.99).
- Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Click the button that says “claim this profile”. Here’s how it looks.
It will only work if your Facebook account ID is the same as the Facebook account ID attached to the non-member profile. Otherwise, anyone could claim anyone’s profile. If the two match, your member profile will be merged with the non-member profile.
