Before booking a stay or an Experience, we may ask for a government ID or that you verify your identity. We will need to know some basic information—which we don't share with Hosts or anybody else. We also encourage profile photos, and some Hosts may require them, but profile photo's aren't displayed until after a booking is confirmed.
