The fix to this , from your mobile use a mobile data connection and a vpn app like (free hotspot shield) and put it on… then open verification link sent through sms to you and it will accept uploading the images you take .

Still having the same issue in October 2020; here’s how I got around it:

  1. Turn off wi-fi and switch to mobile data.
  2. Use a VPN e.g. Nord or Express VPN. Someone mentioned free hotspot shield.
  3. Copy the link to the page where you upload the front of your DL or passport and email it to yourself. Open the link on your desktop.
  4. Send a secure link back to your phone via SMS.
  5. Open the link on your phone and upload the photos.
  6. Complete the process on your desktop by clicking submit.

Hope this helps someone!

Best, Dan
