    How can there be problems with a PDF if the ID is validated by one of the ‘zed humans? Simply open a file and look at it ? Or is that process automated ?

    I’m still concerned how all this personal and confidential data is being handled.

    I trust Fred more than the government.

    By far the easiest route. Takes a few days if you’re not already in LoTW.

    Judging by the quality of many of the for sale photos I have seen over the years, the "submit an image of your gummint ID" system is dooooooooooomed.

    How much leeway is given to the validators for partially readable, blurry, out of focus and covered in mysterious crud ID images?

    Doesn't matter. I sent a scan of my driver's license and they STILL didn't "verify" me!

    Privacy gone, nothing gained!

    I thought that was only for foreigners! :)

    The answer to your question is in step #2 in the first post of this thread.
    Was the 2FA process completed and when did you send in your DL scan?

    I agree with this statement, however, you are not sending the info to Fred. You are sending it to an organization. The more organizations that store important data about you increases the probability of your information falling into nefarious hands. An organization may have impeccable security today....6 months down the road they still have your data but not necessarily impeccable security.

    Are you concerned about that because you believe that QRZ retains or stores the scan of your government issued photo ID?

    Yes, I have the 2FA process now and am using it, and I scanned my DL on Monday, but I may have sent it in on Tuesday. I don't remember which.
