User email verification on Hood
Verify your workplace through your work or college email to add a layer of credibility to your profile. Follow the steps outlined below to complete the verification, which is currently available to waitlisted users only:
- Ensure your work email corresponds with your present company’s or college’s email domain (for example, yourname@YourCompanyName.com).
- The verification status will appear in the “Account Setting” section once you successfully verify your email. While others can view the status, your email address remains confidential.
- Note that you’ll need to re-verify your email every 365 days for security reasons.
How to Verify Your Work Email:
- Navigate to “Setting” > “Account” > “Get Verified”.
- Input your current work or college email and click “Next”.
- Retrieve the verification code from your email. If you haven’t received a code, click “Resend Code”.
- Enter the received code and click “Verify” (note that the code expires 30 minutes post-receipt). This will add you to the waitlist.
- Upon verification, you’ll receive an in-app notification confirming the same.
How to Re-verify Your Work Email:
Should you need to reverify after 365 days or at any other point, follow these steps:
- Go to “Setting” > “Account” > “Get Verified”.
- Click “Reverify”.
- Confirm your choice to “Reverify”.
- The verification process will then restart, during which your previous verification status will be suspended temporarily until the new verification is complete.
