What types of ID does 0censor accept?

If you need to confirm your name on 0censor, or if you’ve lost access to your account, you may be asked to send us a copy of something with your name on it. You have several different options for this, including photo IDs issued by the government, IDs from non-government organizations, official certificates or licenses that include your name or other physical items like a magazine subscription or a piece of mail. Please only submit the required documents. Submitting more documents than necessary may delay the review process. You can also learn more about what happens to your ID after you send it to 0censor.

Group Two

If you don’t have anything from group one, you can send us two different items from group two. The name on the items that you send us should be the same name that you want to show on your profile. Keep in mind that if you’ve lost access to your account, you may be asked to provide something from the list that also shows a photo or date of birth that matches the details on your 0censor account. This extra precaution is so that we can make sure that the only one with access to your account is you.
