Address verification with PIN
To protect your account, Google requires you to verify your address before we can send you any payments.
Verification of your account information
- When your earnings reach the verification threshold, we’ll mail a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to the address in the Payments section of your account at > Payments > Manage settings.

Timeline: We'll print and send your PIN by standard mail several days after your account balance reaches the verification threshold. PINs typically arrive within 2-4 weeks, but may take longer depending on your location.
Note: The PIN mailer may include the Google and AdSense logos instead of AdMob. AdMob uses your AdSense account to manage your payments.
- Follow the instructions from the mailer to enter the PIN into your AdMob account.
If a PIN isn’t entered within 4 months of the generation of your first PIN, ads will stop showing in your apps.
Haven’t received your first PIN? After 4 weeks of the initial request, you can request up to 2 additional replacement PINs.
Verify your address a different way
If you've requested your maximum of 3 PINs and haven't received any of them within 4 weeks of your last PIN request, follow the instructions displayed on the Home page of your account. You’ll learn how to send us an official document proving your address through a 'Contact Us' form.
