When you sign up for a new online account, it’s possible you’ll be asked to confirm your identity. Sometimes, this is an innocuous request asking you to confirm via a text message or other channel. In other cases, it might be more malicious. Be wary of requests that ask you to upload a selfie or other picture, as these are often scams.
