How to get your Instagram account verified

It won't be a surprise if you come across fake accounts on social media platforms these days and fall for them. One way to demarcate genuine accounts is to look for verified badges on accounts. A lot of celebrities and influencers have verified badges on Twitter and Instagram.

In the case of Instagram, earlier the way to get your account verified was if the account was selected by the company itself. Another way was to purchase the blue tick and get it done.

Instagram has now opened the option of account verification for everyone. Any user can apply for the verification badge, but the one thing that you should note is that not every user who applies for it gets the account verified. But hey, there's no harm in trying.
