Why do I have to verify my work email?

There are two types of audiences for studies on Respondent:

  • General Population
  • Industry Professional

In order to qualify for Industry Professional studies (those targeted towards participants in a specific set of industries with specific skills), participants are required to have a verified work email on their account.

Please note: You will still be able to participate in General Population studies without a work email.


  • An email with a professional domain must be entered in the "Work Email" field on the third page of your account set up (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, and other generic domains will not be accepted for verification purposes) 
  • The email must be verified by clicking the link in the verification email and logging into your account on Respondent directly from that link. 

Why is this required?

The Email provided is used for Respondent verification purposes only and helps Respondent to deliver participants who are whom they say they are to researchers. 

This information will not be provided to any researcher without your consent. You can read more about Respondent's Data Security and Privacy Policy by visiting our website.
