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

  1. 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 Settings 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.
  2. 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.
