Get verified on Instagram
It is such a rewarding task to get verified on Instagram and also on the other social media platforms. Only ONE blue checkmark does it all. Everyone sitting out there including brands, public figures, influencers, etc is trying hard to put that blue checkmark beside their name. Getting verified on the social media channels isn’t an easy task. But, there is GOOD NEWS for everyone who has wish-listed the blue mark: Instagram has recently declared that the process for verification will become one step easy.
What are the requirements for getting verified?
Instagram recently said that they are going to permit public figures, brands, celebrities etc to register for verification. There are many elements on which Instagram evaluates you for further verification. The primary priority is to have a large number of followers. Instagram has not specified how many followers is a prerequisite, but we assume it to be a minimum of ten-thousand followers. There are some more guidelines to be fulfilled in Instagram after accepting their Terms of Service & Community Guidelines:
✔ Your profile should be completed and set to public.
✔ Your account should be real, genuine, representing a real identity: a person or a business. (Verification through government ID)
✔ The account should be the only account representing a business or a person. (Some of the exceptions are language-specific accounts)
✔ The account should be popular and searched by many people. (featured in various news sources)
Verification on Instagram matters a lot
You don’t know how one verification badge can lift your profile so high. Verified profiles are shown at the top of the list when searched by people, it stamps your profile with validity.
Instagram has made everything so easy that each and every process can be completed within the app itself.
1. Click on the three dots on the extreme right corner of your profile.
2. Click on “Settings”
3. Go down and tap on “Request Verification.”
4. Fill your details: full name, category, username, affix your scanned copy or photograph of your ID issued by the government.
5. Tap SEND.
After you’ve completed this process, Instagram will scrutinize your submission and then confirm or reject your request. Applying for this process doesn’t guarantee you verification.
