Instagram just introduced a trio of new features designed to make Instagram a generally safer and more authentic place to hang out and for the first time the platform now offers users a straightforward way to request verification.
“To be verified, an account must comply with Instagram’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. We will review verification requests to confirm the authenticity, uniqueness, completeness and notability of each account. Visit the Help Center to learn more about Instagram’s verification criteria” – Instagram Blog
To apply, just go to your profile, head to Settings, and tap “request verification.” Then, you’ll need to give Instagram your account name, full name, and legal or business ID. After an unspecified time, Instagram will notify you whether your request has been approved or rejected.
Give it a try you might get a blue batch to show off!
