The following is a help sheet to assist you with completing ID verification. An example of when you may be asked to complete an ID verification is when you need to reset your 2FA. The following information is only relevant to you if you have been asked to complete an ID verification.


On the first screen you will be required to select the country that has issued your ID and choose a supported ID type.


On the second screen you will need to upload a photo of your ID. Please ensure that the whole ID is clear and the edges are not cut off. If you are using an ID card to complete the check, the next screen will ask for a picture of the back side of your ID - please complete this even if you do not think there is any important or unique information on the back of your ID.


On the final screen you will be required to take a selfie, please ensure that you take a new photo with you phone or webcam - do not use a professional photo, a photo of your ID or a photo of a photo. Please ensure that in this selfie you hold a piece of paper that has written on it "BitMEX" and the current date.


If you have any questions please try clicking the "Help" text in the top right corner of the ID check widget, or email us directly.
