SheerID Verification FAQ

How do I know you won't take my ID and use it for evil purposes?

This is something we take extremely seriously. We only use someone's information to confirm their eligibility. We do not rent their information. We do not sell their information. We do not store documents or images uploaded to our system. Pinky swear.

What happens if I can't prove I'm a student or teacher?

This rarely happens. All academic institutions are going to give you some kind of official document that we'll accept, but on the occasion you cannot provide us any acceptable proof of validation, we will not be able to allow you to continue to the offer. But let this be said again, if you're in school or employed by a school, you have a document we can verify.

Why do I have to go through a verification process?

You are submitting a request for an exclusive academic offer. For quality control purposes, and to ensure only those people who fall under the required conditions are able to obtain this special offer, we have a very short qualification process we ask you to participate in. All information collected is strictly controlled and is never shared outside the context of this particular verification request.
