I am hesitant to submit my identification for user verification. How do I know my information is secure?

Is uploading your government identification to Parler safe?

Parler Citizens upload their government issued identification to unlock certain features on Parler. We do not keep a copy of your ID, instead we keep a hash of your information in our database. We NEVER share your personal information with third parties. The point of the Citizens program, is that the user prove they are – in fact – human beings and not “bots”. Once you show your ID, we destroy the image.

I am having issues getting my Driver’s License to scan, do you have any tips or suggestions?

Currently, we only verify users with United States’s Government-issued identification. We are working on a feature that will allow international users to verify.

If you have a U.S. Government ID and are still having issues, try the following tips:

Remove hats and/or glasses
Beards can affect facial recognition, so smile big and hold still
Ensure there is ample lighting
Try a few times if needed

NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US YOUR IDENTIFICATION, WE CANNOT ENSURE EMAIL IS SECURE
