Facebook and Instagram Users Being Asked To Upload IDs To Regain Access | TPM Idea Lab
: "As it turns out, the requests are official and are being done by Instagram and Facebook in response to suspected violations of the two social networks’ distinct terms of service. “This is just a general practice for both Facebook and Instagram to request photo IDs for verification purposes depending on what type of violation may have occurred,” a spokesperson for Facebook told TPM. “Unfortunately, I can’t share more with you beyond that as we don’t go into details beyond that.” Facebook declined to state exactly why a number of users would collectively receive notifications to provide government issued IDs this week or what specific violations of terms prompted the notifications."
