To access all the services and benefits of the Wirex platform, you need to verify your identity. This is a standard procedure to ensure the security of the platform and protect all users. In this guide, we will explain how to verify your identity on Wirex. You can find a step-by-step guide below.
Before you begin, ensure that you have the following:
- A government-issued photo ID
- A computer or smartphone connected to the iInternet
- A good quality camera or scanner to capture your ID
Here are the steps to verify your identity on Wirex:
Step 1: Login to your Wirex account
Log in to your Wirex account using your email address and password. We will provide you with the necessary information regarding the required data.
Step 2: Provide your phone number
To safeguard your account, we require a valid phone number. We may also require you to verify your phone number via SMS to confirm that your information is accurate and up to date.
Step 3: Enter your personal information
Enter your personal information, including your full name and address. Ensure that the information matches the details on your government-issued ID.
Step 4: Upload your ID
Upload a clear and legible photo of your government-issued ID. Accepted forms of ID include a passport, driver's licence, or national ID card. Make sure that the ID has not expired and that all the details in the photo are visible.
Step 5: Take a selfie
Take a selfie. Ensure that your entire face is clearly visible in the image. In case you need to capture the picture again, click on the "Take a New Picture" option. After ensuring that your selfie accurately depicts your entire face, click on the "Confirm My Selfie" button to submit the image.
Step 6: Submit your request
After uploading your ID and selfie, click on the "Submit" button. Wait for the Wirex team to review your request.
