So, I hear you are trying to verify your account by Scanning your ID on Cash App, but unfortunately, it is not scanning for you.

Well, This happens all the time and I will guide you and help you through every step along the way. All you need to do is follow along.

Why Cash App Won’t Scan My ID?

Cash App won’t scan my ID due to blurry images, insufficient or excessive light, dirty camera lens, expired ID, and using the wrong type of ID. Take the photo in a well-lit, glare-free area, place your license against a dark background, and check that your license is valid.

Why Cash App Won't Scan My ID

Here are a few reasons why it may happen in a bit more detailed explanation:

Reason 1: Blurry Image

Most of the time, we rarely check the images we upload unless they are for our Instagram post.

Know that Cash App won’t scan your ID if the image is blurry and the app won’t be able to read it. Thus, you need to make sure that the image of your photo ID is clear and legible.

Reason 2: Insufficient or Excessive Light

When taking our Instagram posts, people use ring light or natural sunlight to make the photo look more attractive.

Similarly, if you take your License ID in a dark room, that is another possible reason why Cash App won’t scan your ID due to insufficient or excessive light.

You need to take proper care and make sure it is in a well-lit area devoid of glare, reflection, and shadows.

Reason 3: Dirty Camera Lens

Yes, lighting is important, but the desired image can only be taken with a clean lens.

A bad camera or a dirty camera lens can hinder the process of scanning and can further create this problem.

Take a clean microfiber cloth and wipe it gently to make sure that your camera lens is clean.

Reason 4: Using an Expired ID

I can’t help you with this one if you are using an expired ID. You can’t fool Cash App and they won’t accept it.

Reason 5: Using the Wrong Type of ID

Cash App only accepts a variety of IDs. I will list it down below.

Let’s say for instance, if your driver’s license isn’t working (which it should btw, as they accept it), try using your passport or state ID.

Types of ID for Cash App Scan Verification

Here’s a list of the supported and accepted IDs in the USA:

  • Driver’s License
  • State-issued ID
  • Passport
  • Military ID

By the way, you should note that the ID must be issued by the United States government in order to be accepted.

How To Take a Clear Photo of Your License ID for Cash App?

  1. Use a better camera – The camera quality of your phone needs to be decent and the details of your ID are visible and legible.
  2. Lighting Issue – When taking a photo of your ID, the light must be well-lit and adequate but not too bright or too dim. Another thing to avoid is taking photos in direct sunlight, as this can cause glare and make it difficult to read the information on your ID.
  3. Dirty Lens – Clean the lens of your camera as the dirty lens can cause the photo to be blurry or unclear.
  4. Place your ID against a dark background – Place the ID against a dark background such as Black or Brown making it easier to read and definitely not against a white or light-colored background which will just blend in and make it more difficult to scan and read.
  5. Verify that your driver’s license is still valid – Before taking a photo of your ID, make sure that your driver’s license is still valid. If your license has expired or is no longer valid, you may experience difficulty in scanning your ID on Cash App.
