How to Verify Worldcoin Without Orb

Unfortunately, verifying your World ID without an Orb is not currently possible for most people. Here’s why:

  • Orbs and Iris Scanning: The fundamental design of Worldcoin is built around ensuring fair distribution and preventing multiple claims by the same person. The Orb’s primary purpose is to perform biometrics scans (specifically your iris) to achieve this unique personhood verification.
  • World ID 2.0 and Trusted Devices: Worldcoin recently released their World ID 2.0 which allows verification through trusted mobile devices instead of Orbs for certain use cases. However, this requires:
    • The service/application you’re using has to specifically support this new World ID verification method.
    • You must have previously had your World ID verified with an Orb.

The Orb remains the primary method of verification for the vast majority of people and scenarios.

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • Expansion: Worldcoin is a growing project, and they might develop alternative verification methods in the future.
  • Accessibility: They recognize that Orbs have limited reach currently, and improvements are something they continually work on.

If Orb access is impossible for you, here’s what you can do:

  • Monitor Announcements: Keep an eye on the Worldcoin website ( and announcements regarding verification methods.
  • Contact Worldcoin Support: You can explain your situation to their support team. They might have guidance or information on potential workarounds in your specific scenario.
