Verifying Your ID with Instagram

While it has been available on Facebook for quite some time now, a verification badge is something that is quite new to Instagram. It is pretty easy to verify yourself and start the process.

You must request verification

When you go into your setting, you will see an area that will help you upload your ID. This will be the first step in possibly getting your verification badge. You will need to follow the right steps and go from there.

Make sure to use the right ID

It is important that you use a government-issued ID when trying to get your verification badge. Don’t try to use a school ID or library card when getting your verification badge. This will look amateur and admins will most likely just dismiss your request.

You now just have to wait

Unless you are a minor celebrity, an established business, or someone who is searched for on a regular basis, you might not get your badge. It really is just a waiting game to see if the admins feels as though you are legitimate enough to have your own badge.

While getting an ID badge may be easier to apply for now, it really just depends if you are in the public eye enough for admins to feel like you even need this badge. Using the right ID is a great way to get started. You will be able to make sure you have all of the right items in place to help you have a better chance of getting your badge.
