Get Verified On Instagram

What is Verified Badge?

A verified badge is a check that appears next to the name of the Instagram account in search and on the profile. This means that Instagram has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of a public person, celebrity or global brand.

Requirements to Apply for a Verified Badge

  • Your account must be genuine and authentic, representing a real person, organization or brand.
  • Your account must be unique in relation to a person or business that is denoted with language-specific account exceptions. Instagram does not verify general interest accounts (example: @puppymemes).
  • Your account must be public and complete in that it has a bio, profile picture and at least one post.
  • Your profile may not contain "Add me" links from other social media services.
  • Your account should be highly searched for a famous, person, brand or entity. Instagram review accounts have been featured in many news sources, and do not consider payment or promotional material as sources for review.

How to Get Verified on Instagram?

To request a verified badge:
  1. Log in to the account you want to verify.
  2. Go to the top right corner and tap on the menu icon.
  3. Go to Settings> Requests Verification
  4. Enter your name and provide a photo ID, which can be your passport, driving license, or any other government-issued ID card.

After You Apply for the Verification Badge

Instagram will review your request and send you a notification to know whether the account has been verified or not.

If your request has been rejected, you do not need to be disappointed, because you can send a new request after 30 days. If your account is now verified, then you are good to go.

Keep in Mind

Keep in mind that once your account is verified, you can not sell or advertise or transfer your verified badge. 

This is against Instagram's policies and by doing so Instagram can disable verification of your account at any time as well as disable it. In addition, you can not use your account profile picture or bio or name section to promote any other services.

Any false information provided by you during the verification request that confuses the Instagram, will take toward Instagram's removal of the badge and remove the account.
