Verification process: why need to send photo of me holding my passport?
I just signed up with DigitalOcean for website hosting. For some reason, I was asked to verify my identity by emailing a photo of me holding my passport. Why is this required? I am not comfortable with sending my passport through email. Is there another secure way to verify my identity?
