Go verify YOURSELF

Verification is free, optional and available to all.

Join us in building a more trusted community

Why verification?

In the past, we tried several solutions to reduce the problem of smurfing in matches. Some solutions included: verifying players by SMS, implementing a paywall, Steam hours account requirement, numerous changes to our matchmaking algorithm and many more.

While they helped reduce the problem, they were only partially effective and couldn’t stop smurfing and multi-account abuse in your matches. Due to the increasing demand from players to address trust issues directly, we developed a radical solution—a free opt-in ID verification, an unmatched layer of security to build a more trusted community.


You can only verify

one account

Verification cannot be transferred to another account


Choose how to verify your account through either Document capture or Face capture (coming soon).
The choice is yours. Both options are encrypted, secure, and take just a few moments to complete. All you’ll need is your smartphone and original documentation (if you choose Document capture).

Face Capture (coming soon) will require regular rechecks to maintain verified integrity.

Knowing what happens to your data is important. When you verify your account on FACEIT, your encrypted Verification Information gets stored on Daon’s European Datacenters.

On the FACEIT database, we will only store that you have been verified. 

None of your ID verification data will be stored on FACEIT.


Verified requirement

In the future, verification status will be required to access specific competitions and part of the experiences on FACEIT. 

One example is players participating in official competitions such as open qualifiers may be required to verify their account to participate in the competition.

Tagged for verfication

For certain accounts, verification will be enforced to keep accessing FACEIT.
This new layer of verification will create a much higher barrier to entry, mitigating malicious behaviors based on the consolidation of multiple data points being used, particularly concerning boosting services and black markets in the past months.

Every verification counts in building a more trusted community.
