Here is how you can verify your Instagram profile and obtain a badge

While Twitter is not receiving any new requests for verifying a user account, Facebook owned App Instagram lets you verify your profile. To request a verified badge, you must be a public figure, celebrity or brand and meet certain account and eligibility requirements.

The verified account with a badge has many advantages. People are assured that it is the actual profile of the user they are visiting.

Here is how you can request a verified badge on Instagram.

  1. Make sure you’re logged in to the account you’re requesting a verified badge for.
  2. Go to your profile and tap .
  3. TapSettings > Request Verification.
  4. Enter your full name and provide the required form of identification (example: government issued photo ID).

I have just submitted my account for verification, fingers crossed. Good luck.
