How to Get Verified on Instagram

Getting verified on Instagram is a way to show that your account is authentic and trustworthy.

The blue checkmark next to your username means that Instagram has confirmed that you are the person or brand that you claim to be.

Here are the steps to get verified on Instagram:

Step 1: Meet the Requirements

Instagram has specific requirements for accounts that are eligible for verification. To be considered for verification, you need to:

  • Be a public figure, celebrity, or brand.

  • Have a complete bio, profile photo, and at least one post.

  • Be active on Instagram and have a significant number of followers.

  • Be a unique and well-known presence in your field.

Step 2: Submit a Request

Once you meet the requirements, you can submit a request for verification through the Instagram app:

  1. Go to your profile and tap the three lines in the top right corner.

  2. Select "Settings" and then "Account".

  3. Scroll down and select "Request Verification".

  4. Fill out the form with your account information, including your full name and a photo ID that shows your name and date of birth.

  5. Choose a category for your account (public figure, celebrity, or brand) and provide additional information to support your request, such as news articles, press releases, or a Wikipedia page.

Step 3: Wait for a Response

Instagram will review your request and notify you of the outcome within a few days. If your request is approved, you will see a blue checkmark next to your username. If your request is denied, you can try again after 30 days.

Tips for Success

  • Make sure your account is complete and up-to-date before submitting a request for verification.

  • Provide as much information as possible to support your request, such as links to relevant websites or social media profiles.

  • Be patient and don't give up if your request is denied. Keep building your presence on Instagram and try again later.

If the official method of requesting verification on Instagram doesn't work, there are a few alternative ways you can try:

  1. Connect with a Facebook Partner Manager: If you have a Facebook advertising account, you may be able to connect with a Facebook Partner Manager who can help you get verified on Instagram. They can provide guidance on the verification process and help you submit a request.

  2. Become a Brand Collaborator: If you work with brands on Instagram, you may be able to get verified through a brand collaboration. Brands can request verification for their collaborators, so if you work with a verified brand, they may be able to help you get verified as well.

  3. Get Featured on Instagram: If your account gets featured on Instagram's Explore page or in a media publication, it can increase your chances of getting verified. Instagram may be more likely to verify your account if it's already gaining visibility and recognition.

  4. Use a Third-Party Service: There are third-party services that claim to help users get verified on Instagram. However, be cautious when using these services as they may be scams or violate Instagram's terms of service. Do your research and use these services at your own risk.

It's important to note that there is no guaranteed way to get verified on Instagram, and the verification process is ultimately at Instagram's discretion. It's best to focus on building a strong, authentic presence on the platform and following Instagram's guidelines for verification.
