Why does Facebook fail ID verification and How do I verify it?

In simple, Facebook is an online social networking platform that users use to share content or videos with friends, and others. There may be several issues when Facebook not verifying my ID, but the most common reason is unclear pictures, which are shared at the time of verification. So, before sharing the ID with a picture, be sure it is visible and clear to detect at the time of verification. The given top reasons are also responsible for the Facebook ID verification problems.

  • Photo Issues: When the image of ID proof is too blurry and unable to be detected properly, Facebook will reject the verification with the shared ID pictures.

  • Missing Information: The shared ID proof does not include all essential details required for verifications.

  • Mismatch Data: Facebook will not verify when the uploaded ID proof as the pictures do not match perfectly with the user's ID and belong to someone else.

  • Name and age: When the uploaded user ID does not contain the same name and age as told by users, Facebook cannot verify the ID.
