Don’t do it. You get your ads suspended. Do it wrongly, and you get suspended. Okay, then, you did it correctly; it takes forever to verify. Although this is not always the case for everybody, Adsense Verification is one tedious process you must handle carefully.
What is Adsense Verification?
Once you’ve earned your first $10 on Google AdSense, AdSense will have to mail you a PIN to your registered address, as discussed in our previous guide. This AdSense pin is unique to each AdSense account, and it is sent through courier to the address you provided when you created your AdSense account.
This is a mandatory process that must be done before you can even think of withdrawing your blog earnings from Google Adsense.
When will You be Able to Verify Your PIN?
AdSense usually sends the PIN to publishers once they hit the verification threshold, I.e., after they’ve made their first $10 from the platform.
The good news is that you can request another one if the first fails to get to you. However, the problem is that you only have three times to request the pin.
There’s an upside yet. After the 4th week of your last pin request, you can verify your Google Adsense account with a government-approved ID card.
But AdSense—why all this stress?
Well, you can’t help but blame our society, where things can’t just go straight.
Adsense address verification is one of Google’s ways to eliminate scammers and spammers from the platform.
How do I request a New Adsense Pin?
You can request a new PIN if you don’t receive your first one in 2-4 weeks. You have 28 days from the date of the first PIN generation to request another AdSense PIN. You can
Visit your Account Information Page under the Settings page to determine when your last PIN was generated.
The new PIN sent out in response to a request is a carbon copy of the original or first PIN sent. In essence, it is the same. So if, for any reason, you receive your first pin after 28 days, you can still use it, even after requesting the second one. And in this case, you’d no longer need the second one.
You should take your time while requesting the second Pin. Ensure to write an accurate mailing address; perhaps that could be why your first pin wasn’t delivered. As a result, it is recommended that you double-check the address you supplied in your application and, if necessary, fix any errors.
After you’ve validated your delivery information, click the Verify Address tab and then the Request New PIN option at the bottom of the page. Click Yes, Generate, and Mail PIN if the address you entered the first time is correct.
If you want to alter your mailing address before getting a PIN, choose the second choice, “No, Change My Address First.”
Change your mailing address after clicking that tab, then click Generate a New PIN.
How to Verify an Adsense Account Without a Pin
Even after reapplying for an AdSense pin for the second or third time, you may not receive it owing to your location (especially if you live in a remote section of your nation). Many such instances have been reported to me, so I began exploring alternative means of AdSense address verification.
According to AdSense Help, a user can only obtain an AdSense verification PIN three times. If you’ve requested your maximum of three PINs and haven’t received any within four weeks of your last PIN request, you can still verify your account by uploading a government-issued identification card.
Depending on your country, a Government-issued card could be anything from a Driver’s license or passport book to an approved identity card. So if you’ve got a government-issued ID card ready, follow the steps below.
Before that, Make sure the name on your AdSense account does not correlate with the one on your government-issued ID. It’s not a rule for all, but it could make your verification faster.
How to get Adsense Verification with a government-issued ID Card
After making three unsuccessful attempts to verify your account with the Adsense pin, a link to a form will be added to the verification page on your Adsense dashboard. This is what it’d look like:
- Name: Fill up your name as it appears in the Adsense Account Contact form.
- Your email address is: Fill in the email address to which the verification status email should be sent. This should be the email address associated with your Adsense account.
- Your Adsense Publisher ID: Your Adsense Publisher ID should be entered there. This information can be found under Settings->Account->Account Information.
- Attach a document: Upload a scanned copy of your government identification card. This should be the same address as the Adsense account’s address.

You can use an app on a mobile phone or software on a PC to scan it. I think Adobe Scanner would do the job pretty well for these devices.
