The blue check (or tick) mark on Instagram is one of the quickest ways of determining whether an account is official or not.

Favoured by celebrities and high profile influencers as well as business accounts and other major players on Instagram, the blue check is something that verifies an account and proves to other users that it is “official” – so to speak.

The reason behind the launch of the blue check was simple: to alleviate the risk of false accounts trying to pretend to be celebrities and high profile users. Because of this, blue checks are reserved for profiles with a significant presence and following – and must be applied for then verified by Instagram.

In terms of the cost, wannabe influencers and high profile account holders will be pleased to hear that obtaining a blue check is affordable at £11.99 per month.

As well as the cost however, the application is time consuming and requires a significant investment of effort in building a profile that Instagram will deem worthy of the check mark.

Here’s how to become verified and get a blue check on Instagram.

5 Steps To Apply For a Blue Check

  1. Make sure that you are logged into the account that you want to verify om Instagram, and head to your profile page.
  2. Click on the menu button in the top right hand corner of the screen
  3. Select ‘Meta Verified’ towards the bottom of the list of options
  4. This will take you to Meta Verified application screen, which lets you know what the badge does and how it supports those with a growing or already prominent profile on Instagram and Facebook

Once you’ve completed all the relevant details, your application will be reviewed by Instagram – taking into account the notability and uniqueness of your account, whether you are a verified individual or user, and how high your chances of becoming personated are.
