Identity Verification

Whenever you use certain Wallet features, Google is required by financial regulations to request, verify, and record information that identifies each person who uses this service. We'll ask for your name, address, date of birth, last four digits of Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN), and other information that'll let us to reasonably verify your identity.

If you fail to provide information that we can accurately match to public records, we'll ask that you provide additional information to confirm your identity. This process has no effect on credit scores or reports, and credit will not be pulled to verify your identity. We might also use this stored information for security purposes, for example, to make sure that someone trying to access your Wallet is really you.

To verify your identity from your Wallet's Settings, sign in at wallet.google.com and click the gearbox. You can also go through the process at wallet.google.com/kyc.
