If you’ve been wanting a blue tick for your Instagram account, then the whole process just got a lot simpler. Those on the quest for social media fame can now request to be verified on Instagram.
Rather than have it assigned to them when IG deems them worthy, the Facebook-owned company has now made it possible for users to apply to be verified.
To begin the application process, you can simply go to the settings on Instagram and tap on “Request Verification”. Once you’ve provided your full name and identification, IG will then make the decision on whether you get the blue tick.
IG stated that it will “review verification requests to confirm the authenticity, uniqueness, completeness, and notability of each account.”
This will include reviewing accounts which are “featured in multiple news sources”.
