When you’re digging on Instagram, sometimes, you want to confirm an account is legitimate. Therefore, you see a blue check next to the name. Immediately, you’ll also want to see how it works and if it’s possible to verify your account too.
Well, although it looks simple to do, the real deal is completely different. Meaning, for Instagram to verify your account, you must be a public figure, celebrity or representing a famous brand. Nevertheless, it’s not impossible. So, pay attention to the following steps and get prepared for the new challenge.
First things first
The blue check works for verifying the authenticity of public interest account. Thus, if the account has a blue check, then, it means you can trust is the person it says.
You may wonder who can apply. Well, here are some users worthy of trust verification:
How to verify your account
Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible for the blue check. But, there are other ways of verifying your account. Furthermore, the platform notices some aspects of the account, such as:
- How many followers you have
- The use of the profile
- How you fill the form for the application (in case you’re selected)
We assume you already worked at least on the first points. If not, then it’s time for you to work on it. Once you’ve done that, it’s time for you to follow the next steps:
1- Fill the form (In case you’re the chosen one): The first step is to complete the form Instagram gives you. But, be careful because you have to be honest and go straightforward if you really want the blue check.
2- Manage your content: Instagram wants to know everything about you. So, you have to take care of the most important thing, your content. It is the primary key to know if a profile is true or false. All, from the activity, the posts, and interaction, all counts.
3- Use other platforms too: Make sure people notice your presence on other platforms. Therefore, take part in other profiles, get involved in conversations and so on.
What if I already have the blue check on Facebook?
Actually, having a blue check doesn’t mean you can also have it on Instagram. In this case, what may work is to attach your Instagram profile from your Facebook page.
Remember, it’s not easy to get the blue check and there’s no way of making it directly. Therefore, work hard on making your profile a candidate for Instagram.
