Identity verification helps to ensure that there is a real person behind every project on Kickstarter.
Being a creator is a serious endeavor – verifying that you are who you say you are strengthens the integrity of the Kickstarter system. It also protects you by preventing someone else from running a project under your name. Please note that ID verification is a mandatory step in each individual project.
When running a 2nd or 3rd project, please factor in verification time regarding your launch, as it must be completed even though the ID has been verified for a previous project.
It is not possible to edit your Verified Identity once a project is launched. However, we understand that in certain scenarios a name change is required for the safety of our community. If you believe that your personal circumstances may qualify you for an exception, please reach out to our support team.
