How to ask for Instagram and Facebook account verification

What is verification on an account? In essence, verification is a way for people to know that the notable accounts they are following or looking for are exactly who they say they are. It is a way of knowing which accounts are authentic and remarkable, represented by a blue verification badge next to the name, such as Twitter. But Instagram and Facebook have them too.

More details about the verification process and meaning

What does verification mean and what does it NOT mean?

Simply put, verification indicates authenticity and remarkableness. It is not an endorsement on our part, and just being verified does not mean that your content is favored by our systems in terms of where your content appears. We try to ensure fairness in the verification request process based on sources such as credible press coverage and examining the cultural impact of the individual. For example: are they currently an important part of what people in your community are talking about? Have they gone viral recently?

Unfortunately, we know that verified accounts can pose a security risk to their holders. Hackers may attempt to take control of a verified account to sell the badge (as well as their hard-earned followers).

Can I transfer my verification badge to another account?

Verified accounts cannot change the account name or transfer that verification to another account. The purpose of the blue badge is to let people know that the account has been verified and that we have confirmed that they are who they say they are.

What happens when we detect a suspicious or malicious verification?

If we discover that verification has been maliciously acquired, or that an individual is selling verified accounts to others, we will take action. We carry out regular sweeps both on and off the platform to find and remove malicious actors from Instagram.
