These are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the Instagram Verification process and what it entails...

What is a verified badge on 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.

 

How do I request a verified badge for my Instagram profile?

To request a verified badge, you must be a public figure, celebrity or brand and meet certain account and eligibility requirements. Keep in mind that even if your account is eligible for verification, submitting a request doesn't guarantee that your account will be verified.
