How to verify your BrightID

Step 1: Go to and connect your wallet.
Step 2: Click Connect Account on the BrightID stamp card.
Step 3: Select the toggles you want to use for your stamp then click Verify.
Step 4: A QR code will be shown in a modal. Scan it from your BrightID app on your phone.
Step 5: The BrightID app will prompt you to link your Gitcoin to BrightID. Click Yes.
Step 6: Wait for success confirmation. Do not continue before you receive confirmation of successful linking or it will fail and could cause future issues linking BrightID. Do not close the BrightID app during this time.
Step 7: Return to the Passport browser window and click Connect Bright ID.
Step 8: Confirm your account is now verified.
You can confirm this by seeing the button that previously read as Connect Account will now say Verified. Alternatively, you can inspect the Passport JSON.
