Very Bad Service F--

I have to say…singing up for DO was a total disaster. Fix you workflow. Asking for my ID, the sending in my ID the asking for another “USA Identification” screams a totally untrained offshore support center. Two hours dealing with support and still noting being able to sign up with a Bank of America CC? Are you kidding me?

Have courtesy and stop wasting peoples time. There is now way DO can handle a HA stack if one can even sign up. Maybee for a small blog but wow…trying to compare to lindode or aws…give me a break…

Really…totally bad service

It’s an easy WebRTC Photo (high res) and GIF capture (240p) in one which is nice for ID’ing customers holding ID passport or whatever. After the ID, simply delete the capture.

This old question seems to be receiving some attention today, so I wanted to provide an update. To be clear, DigitalOcean does not ask anyone to upload scans of their IDs to imgur.

Occasionally we ask customers who have set off our abuse filters to verify their accounts. This is done by emailing us scans of their ID. We agree that asking anyone for ID isn’t an ideal situation, but unfortunately we deal with a large amount of abusive and fraudulent signups. The vast majority of customers will never need to provide any ID.

As a developer of an app that crawls imgur for available and hidden images, please refrain from using imgur to upload any personally identifiable information. Also…
