How To Get Verified In Threads?

Here is how to get verified in Threads using legacy verification or Meta verification.

Instagram’s new Twitter alternative, Threads is already blowing up with over thirty million users already signed up for the service. It’s available for everyone on both iOS and Android, with a desktop version to follow down the line. However, you might have been wondering how to get verified, the process is straightforward, especially for those who already have an Instagram account, but those who don’t will need to create one.  

According to the official blog post, users’ Instagram usernames and verification will carry over to Threads. This means you don’t have to apply and pay for verification separately. But then, to get verified on Threads, users must subscribe to Meta Verified. And before going ahead your information, including username, profile name, and date of birth among others must be correct as once the process begins, you won’t be able to change anything.

This process involves having your Instagram account verified. It requires manual verification by Meta, following your request for a badge. The first step is to open ‘Instagram App, then head to ‘Settings’ and tap ‘Business/Creator tools and Controls.’ Next, click Complete the verification request form’ and tap ‘Submit.’ Following these steps will automatically send your request for account verification to Instagram, and, by Proxy, Threads. Note: ‘This might take a few weeks to get a response, therefore, it’s important to know this procedure won’t lead to an instant verification’

Meta Verified costs $14.99 per month for Android and iOS in the United States. And to subscribe, ‘Open Instagram and hit the profile picture in the bottom right corner. Then, on the Profile page, tap the hamburger menu [three horizontal lines] In the top right corner, and then select ‘Settings and Privacy.’ At the top, select ‘Account Center’ and hit Meta Verified’ at the bottom of the page. You will then tap ‘Subscribe’ and confirm by pressing ‘Sign up.’ 

‘The final step is to hit the ‘Pay Now’ button at the bottom and confirm the transaction through the desired mode of payment. Once the payment goes through, you will need to select the type of verification you want to provide, such as a form of government ID, and submit a photo of both sides of the document for proof.’ This process can take up to 48 hours, so you shouldn’t be worried if you don’t immediately see a blue tick next to your username. 

If your account doesn’t get verified for some reason, the subscription fee will be refunded to the original mode of payment. But of course, once you successfully enroll in the Meta Verified Service, you will get a blue checkmark beside your username, not just on Instagram but also on Facebook and the newly launched Threads app. However, if you are already verified on Instagram, you don’t need to do anything. As of now, Threads has a dedicated Verified tab in the Activity section, wherein users can see their interaction with verified users, similar to how Twitter treats notifications from verified accounts.
