Create Your Profile Title & URL

The title of your profile is your first impression to potential clients. It allows you to share your top skills and area of expertise.

To edit your profile title:

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile
  2. Click the Edit button (pencil icon) next to your Name and Title
  3. Update your Title


  • Be descriptive about your skills.
  • Highlight your primary talents instead of trying to include every skill you have.

Custom Profile URL

As a Plus plan member, you can create a customized vanity URL for your freelancer profile. Your customized URL must be 4-20 characters long and only include letters A-Z and numbers 0-9. You may not include "Upwork" in your URL.

To add a customized profile URL:

  1. Go to Find Work > Profile
  2. Click the edit icon next to Profile Link in the right column
  3. Customize your URL

For Basic plan members, it isn't possible to customize your profile URL. You can upgrade to a Plus plan or click the "View my profile as others see it" link and share the default profile URL as it appears in your browser.

Upwork Status

Incident Status

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.

We noticed that you're currently using a browser that is not supported by our video verify process.

We recommend that you switch to Google Chrome or Firefox in order to successfully complete verification. Thank you
