Threads is a social media messaging application created by Instagram that allows users to share photos, videos, notes, and updates with their close friends. The app is meant to enable private and intimate conversations between users in a dedicated area separate from their normal Instagram feed.
Verification on Threads is a process that confirms the authenticity and identity of an account, showing that it belongs to a well-known or famous person, brand, or group. A verified badge is a blue checkmark that shows next to the account name, providing users with security that the account is real.
To get verified on Threads, you must first meet certain registration standards. Typically, verification is kept for important public figures, celebrities, brands, and leaders. Instagram, which owns Threads, has specific rules for determining who is qualified for verification. So in this piece, let’s review the exact guidelines for verification.
Verify your Threads with Instagram’s Legacy Verification.
Instagram’s Legacy Verification process was the main way to get verified on both Instagram and Threads. However, please remember that verification methods and guidelines may have changed since then. It’s always best to refer to the latest public information from Instagram regarding verification processes. Here’s an outline of the Legacy Verification process:
- Firstly, open the Instagram application on your smartphone.
- Next, tap on the picture icon that you’ll find at the bottom right part of the screen. By tapping on the picture icon, you will be led to your personal page on Instagram.
- Tap on the menu icon (three straight lines) in the top-right area of your personal page to open the side menu.
- Scroll down the sidebar and tap on the “Settings” option at the bottom.
- In the settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Account” to view your account options.
- Under the Account settings, look for the option “Request Verification” and tap on it.
- Instagram will ask you to provide certain information to back your verification request. This usually includes your account handle, your full name, and a government-issued identification paper (e.g., passport, driver’s license) that confirms your identity.
- Instagram may also request additional information, such as your job, official website, or media stories showing your successes or public recognition. Provide any important information that can help show your notability or public figure standing.
- After giving the necessary information, send your registration request to Instagram for review. The process of reviewing may take some time, so please be patient and wait for the results.
- Instagram will review your request and tell you of their choice via an in-app notice. If your request is accepted, you will receive a confirmed badge on both Instagram and Threads.
