Badges play a crucial role in fostering trust within the Airtasker community. All members are encouraged to have a badge on their profiles.
Badges provide valuable information to a Customer when choosing the right Tasker for their tasks. When certain criteria are met, a badge is displayed on a member's profile.
It's important to keep in mind that badges are awarded based on a point-in-time check. This means that the results reflect the relevant records available on the date of verification. Customers can hover over your credential badges to view the verification date though some basic badges may not display a specific date.
As a Tasker, we encourage you to always be ready in case the customer requires your Background Check Badge before proceeding with the task. It is not required to have a Background Check Badge to operate on the platform.
For further details on verification and Badges see also Section 10 of Airtasker's Terms & Conditions
Badges currently available include:
