Address verification with PIN

To protect the security of accounts, Google requires you to verify your address before we can send you any payments.

When your earnings reach the verification threshold, we’ll mail a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to the address shown in the Payments section of your account. When you receive your PIN, enter it in AdMob to verify your address. Note: It may take 2 to 4 weeks for your PIN to be delivered by mail.

Enter your PIN to verify your address

If you've received a letter containing a PIN to verify your address, please follow these instructions:

  1. Sign in to your AdMob account at https://apps.admob.com.
  2. Find the PIN verification card on your home dashboard. Click VERIFY.
  3. Enter the PIN you received in the mail and click SUBMIT.

Your payment address is now verified. You'll be paid when your account balance reaches the payment threshold, as long as there are no holds on your account and you're in compliance with the AdSense & AdMob program policies.
