  1. Unfortunately Remotasks does not accept members from the USA and UK (from my understanding). They seem to be looking for members from a handful of developing nations and ex-Soviet bloc nations in Africa, Asia, and eastern Europe. What a shame…..


  2. I think you people are playing with our minds… am even tempted to think remotask is a scam. Imagine I have spent the whole of my week and all the money I had on a data plan so as to take the Remotask training only to be told that remotask is not available in my region… why wait until someone completes the training to tell them something that should have been part of the application process… I feel so deceived… so bad considering the economic situation in my country… or should i say everywhere.


  3. I’m part of remotasks and it’s legitimate. Here in the Philippines they require you to attend a bootcamp seminar for 10 days. Then all of the exam will be conducted on the training room.


      1. Is there any seminar now? how can you get tasks? I completed the initial training and I still don’t have any tasks to do.


  4. Thank you for your review.
    But I consider them not worthy.
    I tried signing up with Remotasks, after receiving my Facebook profile, i was asked to input my phone number for verification, of which I did, but till this moment, I never got the verification code.
    They probably are restricted to particular countries.
    Thanks again.


  5. Hello! Just tried to sign up for this but after they got my Facebook and phone number for verification, I input the code and says cannot be verified! And there is nowhere to check the country list they accept if any. Disappointed!


  6. I am from Guatemala I select my country and put my phone number but haven’t got the verification code yet so it doesn´t work for third world countries neither


  7. As of May 2019, Remotasks has become a total scam for those not in their “country list”. You’ll join, if you’re lucky you’ll do exams.. you’ll work for them and in a week or two everything you worked on will be cancelled and you’ll not get any work. The only reply from the site is that they only work with 3rd world countries. You might want to amend your review!


    1. I would not call this a scam at all. Each site has rules and they work with certain countries. If your country is not on their list it is not possible for you to work on the site. Maybe in the past, they allowed all countries to join, but for now, they have changed their rules and now have a list of countries that can join the site.


      1. Why don’t they publish the eligible countries, so we don’t have to waste time if not in the list …


  8. Thank you for the review. I have signed up for this App but was unsure if really pays. Maybe now I will look into the app further and see what opportunities it brings to make a few dollars once in a while. Thanks again.
