Requirements to have the blue check on Instagram

Before explaining in detail how to have the blue check on Instagram, it is necessary to make a small introduction, to allow you to better understand what the acclaimed blue check is, how it is obtained and what are the necessary requirements to have it.

The blue check that you can see in correspondence with some Instagram profiles (precisely next to the account name), in fact, is nothing more than a verification badge that formalizes the identity of a profile.

You should also know that, initially, Instagram gave the verification badge on its own initiative by giving it to public figures, profiles attributable to famous brands, etc. to allow users to follow the official profiles of these accounts. However, starting from 2018, the photographic social network allows all users to request the officialization of their profile.

However, it is necessary to specify that sending the request does not offer the mathematical certainty that it will be positively received: the last word, in fact, is up to the Instagram team that sifts each request received, to decide what to do.

Furthermore, it is good to clarify that there are requirements that could guarantee a better chance of getting the blue check on Instagram . Your profile, in fact, must be that of a public figure, a celebrity or a brand. Alternatively, it can also be the profile of a company or a digital influencer / creator, provided that the activity carried out is considered to be of public importance.

How to get the blue check on Instagram

To submit the request for formalization of your profile, start the official Instagram app on your Android  or  iOS device since, at the time of writing, the web version of the social network does not offer the possibility to send the request to verify the profile. Then, if you have not already done so, log in to your account , in order to view the main Instagram screen ( the house icon ).

Once this is done, press the icon of the little man (or on the thumbnail of your profile ) located in the lower right corner, tap on the menu icon located at the top right and press the Settings item . Then, in the menu that is shown to you, click on the Account> Request verification items .

Now, in the screen that shows you, fill in the text field located under the heading Name by providing your name and then presses the entry of document type , select the type of document you’re going to charge (eg. The card identity , passport , driving license , etc.), by clicking on the Choose file button .

This is necessary because it allows the Instagram team to evaluate your request, verifying your identity. In fact, even a simple photo of the document in question is enough: the important thing is that your photo, your name and surname and your date of birth are clearly visible.

After carrying out this operation, specify the additional information requested, confirming that your account is of public interest: specify, therefore, the category (for example news / media or government and politics ) and possibly describe the people who follow your account ( public ).

You can also optionally add additional information about the public relevance of your account by adding links to articles or social media accounts that demonstrate your public relevance.

When you’re done, press the blue Send button at the bottom and you’re done. Now all you have to do is wait: the Instagram team will evaluate your request and, if they deem it appropriate, add the verification badge to your account.

Wondering if it is possible to buy the blue check on Instagram , in order to be sure of getting the verified profile within the social network?

In this case I must inform you that the answer is negative since the only way to obtain the verification badge on Instagram is to send the request to the multimedia social network team, as explained in the previous chapter .

In this regard, moreover, I invite you to stay away from any websites or apps that promise to guarantee the official status of your paid profile, as surely it is scams or scam attempts, which could seriously compromise the security of the your account.

Officialize the Instagram profile in an alternative way

Did you send the request for the officialization of your Instagram profile and got a negative response? In this case, you should consider making your Instagram account official in an alternative way.

For example, you could switch to a corporate Instagram account , to add the link to your official website (if you don’t have one, find out now how to create it ), so as to allow other users to understand if the profile is really yours. or less.

In this regard, you must know that carrying out this operation is very simple: all you have to do is pick up your Android  or  iOS smartphone , start the Instagram app or access Instagram through its official website (or using its application for Windows 10 and later), and follow the instructions below.

Once you have viewed the main screen of the social network, in fact, tap on the button with the symbol of the little man (or on the thumbnail of your profile picture ), in order to go to the section of your profile .

Once this is done, press the Edit profile button and, in the screen that opens, you can customize your name and surname , your  username and your website : all you have to do is enter the link to your website in the appropriate field text and that’s it.

You can also fill in the Biography text field by  inserting the link to other social networks and, why not, also add the phrase  Official profile , so as to allow other users to immediately identify your real Instagram account .

Also, I recommend that you set a category for your account (for example digital creator , blogger , journalist or artist ), in order to make it immediately clear to your followers that your account is of public relevance.

When you have finished the changes to your profile, click on the Done button  located at the top right, to save them.

Report unofficial Instagram profiles

Have you finally managed to get the blue check on Instagram ? Very well, I can only be happy! In this specific case, I also recommend that you report any unofficial Instagram profiles (if any).

By the way, if on Instagram you come across a fake profile (maybe someone pretending to be you or a famous person you know), you can report it through a special function made available by the photographic social network. Acting in this way, in fact, you will help the Instagram team to implement the measures for the removal of these unofficial profiles.

To mark a fake account on Instagram , you can act through the social network app, in a very simple way. Alternatively, you can also report a profile using the official Instagram website or using the application for Windows 10 and later.

To do this, start the Instagram app on your Android  or  iOS device or log in to Instagram from your PC .

Once this is done, go to the profile that you believe is violating the community guidelines. Then press the button with the symbol (…)  which is located at the top right and, in the menu you see on the screen, tap the Report button ( Report user , from PC ).

At this point, tap the word Report Account , and choose the options Pretend to be someone else> Me , in case the user impersonates you. Alternatively, you can select the options someone I know , a celebrity or public or A company or organization .

Once you have made this choice, click on the Send report button and wait for the social network team to analyze your report, taking any action.
