As of the 18th of April 2019, the ID Badge has been retired in the UK. After this date, the Badge was removed from all accounts that already had it, and the application process disabled.
If you are a UK member and had the Badge applied, you would have received email notification of this update already. The Badge will no longer show on your account after the 19th.
We’ve made the decision to retire this Badge so we can work on continual updates and improvements to the UK Badging processes. In order to do this, we need to move the process to a different third party verification provider. Stay tuned for more Badge updates in the future!
All current ID Badges have been removed in the meantime to maintain an equal and fair playing field for all members of the Airtasker community. They’ve also been removed so we can build something else in its place.
There are still a few other badges you can apply for in the UK to boost your profile. These include the social media Badges (including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter), the mobile verification Badge and the payment method verification badge.
