Everything You Need To Know About IDProof

We are currently making changes to the IDProof algorithm. This blog post will be updated as soon as these changes are fully implemented

“How can I increase my IDProof?”

This is the most asked question in our customer service hotline. Jobseekers want a high, if not a perfect score of 100, IDProof, and for good reason! But just what is IDProof and how does it work?

What IDProof IS

ID Proof Icon

IDProof is about providing lots of information to help determine your identity to us.

It is our way of telling employers, “We trust this person is real and who he says he is.”

This means that if your profile is incomplete or has questionable information (seriously, you’re an expert in everything?), you won’t get a high IDProof score.

Also, If you only provide a small amount of honest information, then you’ll have a low ID trust score.

IDProof helps employers know that it is a real person applying for the job they posted, but IDProof is not a measure of a jobseeker’s skill.

IDProof helps you land a job by giving employers an idea of who you are as a worker, but it does not guarantee that you’ll get the job if you have the highest score among the applicants.

Protecting your Privacy

You are only submitting your proof of identity to us, Onlinejobs.ph. We do not show your personal information and copies of your ID, address and phone number to employers. Since it is necessary, your Profile Photo, your age, tests taken, date of joining, employment status, and skills are shown to employers. Only employers you applied to or replied to will get your email address. Please see our Privacy Statement.

How Can IDProof Help You

ID Proof

A high IDProof score proves that you’re a person, that you’re real.

What does that mean? Well, this means you become more eligible to apply for more jobs — the more jobs to apply for, the more chances of landing one!

Having a higher ID Proof score compared also means you’ll be competing with fewer people for the same job. This, again, increases your chances of getting a great job.

Here at Onlinejobs.ph, most employers look for applicants who are in it for the long run. The jobs they offer are for long term and not just project-based jobs, so it makes sense if they’re wary of people pretending to be someone they’re not.

That’s why the IDProof score is important to them, and that’s why they prefer jobseekers with a high ID trust score.

How to Increase Your IDProof

This is THE question.

Increasing your IDProof score is actually quite easy. You just have to take some time completing your profile, and fill it out completely and honestly. Remember, you are building your identity on the website, you should build it with honesty. Also, your profile serves as your resume when you apply for jobs, it is the first thing that employers see.

Increase TimeProof

Aside from filling out your profile, make sure that you also do the following:

  • Upload a good government ID. IDs issued by the government usually come with a photo or some form of biometric marker, making them unique and fraud-proof. Here’s a list of IDs that you can use:
    • Philippine Passport
    • Driver’s License
    • SSS UMID Card
    • Philhealth ID
    • TIN Card
    • Postal ID
    • Voter’s ID
    • PRC ID
    • Senior Citizen’s ID
    • OFW ID
  • Upload a Selfie holding your submitted ID.
  • Validate your cellular phone number
  • Verify your address
    • Step one is to upload a Utility Bill that contains your current address. You can provide one even if it is on a different person’s name. If you are renting and utility bills are paid by the landlord, you can provide your signed rental agreement that contains the address.
    • Step two is to type in the same address and click “Save Address”
    • If you have problems with providing this, this step is optional.

The secret here is to provide information about yourself — the more information you provide that proves your identity, the higher your IDProof will be.

How to Avoid Penalties

Negative IDProof

After years of recruiting and filtering through thousands of worker profiles from the Philippines, we’ve developed some pretty strong signals of whether we trust a given profile or not.

Frequent editing deducts temporary point penalties on your IDProof score. While we understand that you would make some changes to your profile as you grow in your career, changing a lot of details frequently tells us that you may be padding your profile to make it more attractive to employers, even if you don’t have those skills.

The temporary deductions will come back after you have stopped editing your profile, how soon will depend on the number of penalties you accumulated.

To avoid having deductions on your IDProof score, do not edit your profile too often. Refrain from making frequent changes to your profile since the system sees this as a red flag. You might be changing things around on your profile to suit the job you’re applying for at the moment, and that is not acceptable.

Do a one-time overhaul of your profile if you have big milestones that could upgrade your resume — like when you’ve acquired a new certified skill or maybe finished a new degree.

Any Problems?

When all’s been said and done, and you still have problems with your IDProof, feel free to contact us.

You can email our support team at support@onlinejobs.ph so that they can assist you with IDProof concerns.

  4. Steven says

    Hello, there. On my end. It doesn’t matter if I have a good “ID Proof” I get 90 before and when I reconnect my Facebook account to see if it can go higher. But my ID was down to 63 . The negative side of having a low “ID Proof” is that most jobs that I’d like to send an application are not accepting a low rate Id proof cause there is a notice tell’s that “Your ID Proof is lower than required to apply to this job.” Meaning, I cannot send an application to this because of the required Id proof was (65 or 70).

  5. Jesse Cervantes says

    I want to verify my address by filling out what’s being asked and then I need to send my address by electric bill, but then it says here that I already uploaded a photo of my parent’s electric bill, which I did not, and told me that I have to wait for it to be verified or checked. And it also says here that it would usually take from 1-2 business days but up until now, there’s no update at all. What am I supposed to do next? I really can’t send my application due to this issue and they’re always enlisted in queue. Please help me with this. Thanks,

      • Inah Bote says

  49. ARTEO JUNE C. RUIZ says

    Hi! good day

    I am really confused with what are the Ids you accept for the government ID part.
    When I uploaded a photo of my NBI clearance as a Government ID. It was rejected.
    Then I tried again. This time you accepted the selfie photo of me with the NBI clearance but not the
    NBI clearance photo. Then I tried again, this time you rejected both. I though that the selfie photo was okay already since there was a
    green mark indication below the selfie photo. Now, I want to try using the Phil Health card but it was indicated in the page that you don’t accept
    Health cards. Now I came over this part of this website and it says that you guys accept PhilHealth Id for the government Id.
    Can you please clarify this for me.

      • ARTEO JUNE C. RUIZ says

        Hi! Thank you for responding. May I know on what time you sent me the email? I haven’t seen any new emails yet. I already checked the Spam messages and none so far.
