What are the tips for quick profile approval?

Often, profiles don't get approved at the first attempt. This happens if the profile photo, video or description doesn’t meet our requirements. Make sure you use your real picture and take the time to record a video introduction. Follow the recommendations given at each step of the registration process.

Be sure to avoid placing any contact details or misleading information on your profile. You will be asked to remove this information from your profile, which will slow down the approval process.
