How to Get Verified on Instagram
Are you wondering how your favorite public figure or Instagram brand became Instagram verified? Wonder no more. Here are the steps you take to become verified on Instagram to grow your followers.
What exactly is a verified badge? That blue check mark deems a profile Instagram verified. According to Instagram: “A verified badge is a check that appears next to an Instagram account’s name in search and on the profile. It means Instagram has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of the public figure, celebrity or global brand it represents.”
Now, to get this checkmark you have to apply. The steps are easy:
- Log into your Instagram account
- Go to your profile and in the top right corner, click the three vertical lines to display the Saved, Discover, Insights, and Settings options.
- At the bottom, click Settings
- Click “Request Verification”
Once you get to the “Request Verification” form, it’s easy! Fill out the form with all the required information and click “send.” There are a few factors Instagram looks at when reviewing your verification request. These are authenticity, uniqueness, completion of account, and notability. Within 30 days you will know if your request has been accepted or denied!
