Threads Verification: How to Get the Blue Checkmark? 

Threads is currently the fastest-growing social media platform on the internet. It has gained over 100 million users in just a few days. The app is available on iOS and Android, with a web version coming soon.

If you are active on the platform, you might have noticed that several Threads users already have the blue checkmark next to their username and profile. If you are also eager to get the blue checkmark for your profile, you are in the right place. In this article, we will guide you on how to get the blue checkmark for your Threads account. Let’s begin.

Threads Blue Checkmark

Threads is an Instagram app, which means it is a part of the Metaverse. Your Threads account is directly linked to your Instagram account. Deleting your Threads account will also delete your Instagram account.

Your username and other personal details are carried forward to the Threads app. As you might have guessed already, the blue checkmark is also taken forward from a user’s Instagram account to their Threads account.

Anyone can get the blue checkmark for their Threads account by subscribing to Meta Verified. Earlier this year, Meta introduced a new subscription model that allowed users to enjoy extra features and get a blue checkmark next to their username.

There is also the traditional way of getting a blue checkmark on Threads. If you get verified on Instagram, you will automatically be verified on Threads. The choice is yours; if you meet the requirements for the traditional verification method, you can go for it. Otherwise, you have to subscribe to Meta Verified.

If you have already verified your account on one of the platforms (Facebook or Instagram), you can skip this. The Meta Verified verification badge will show up across all your Meta accounts.

1. Get the Legacy Verification

If you think you meet the requirements for legacy verification on Instagram, you can try sending a request. Your account should be complete, public, unique, and not violate any of Instagram’s terms of service, notable, and, most importantly, of public interest.

Please be aware that Instagram certifies accounts based on public interest and not just the requirements. After you have sent your request, Instagram will get back to you with a decision on whether or not to verify your account. Follow these steps to apply for legacy verification:

  • Open the Instagram app and head over to your Profile.
  • Select the hamburger icon (three parallel lines) in the upper right corner to access the main menu.
  • Go to “Settings and Privacy.”
  • Tap on the search bar in the Privacy and Settings menu and search for “Request verification” in the box.
  • From the search results, tap on the “Request verification” option.

Apply for Verification

  • There’ll be a form there for you to fill out. Don’t forget to include your full name, nickname, and occupation (actor, singer, journalist, etc.) in the spaces provided.
  • To complete the verification process, you must provide supporting documentation, such as a government-issued photo ID or other formal business documents.
  • Click the “Submit” button to send your verification request after you’ve filled out the form and attached the required documents.

2. Subscribe to Meta Verified

If you cannot get verified by Instagram’s legacy verification process, subscribe to Meta Verified. As a legacy verified account, you will get the same blue checkmark on Threads and Instagram.

Meta Verified is a subscription model that costs $14.99 per month in the United States if you subscribe via the iOS or Android app or $11.99 per month if you subscribe via the web app. In India, the subscription will cost ₹699 per month if you subscribe via the iOS or Android app or ₹599 per month if you subscribe via the web app.

You must subscribe to Meta Verified via Instagram and receive a checkmark on Threads and Instagram.

Verify that your username, profile name, date of birth, and profile photo are correct before beginning the verification process. This is because you cannot change these once you have been verified. Doing so will mean that you have to give up your blue checkmark. Follow these simple steps to subscribe to Meta Verified on Instagram:

  • Open the Instagram app and head on over to your Profile.
  • Select the hamburger icon (three parallel lines) in the upper right corner to access the main menu.
  • Go to “Settings and Privacy.”
  • Select “Accounts Center” at the top of the screen.
  • Scroll down to the bottom and click “Meta Verified.”
  • Select the “Subscribe” option.

Subscribe to Meta Verified

  • Click the “Sign Up” button to verify your subscription.
  • To finalize your subscription, click the “Pay Now” button and confirm the transaction with your chosen payment method.

A verification step follows your subscription to Meta Verified. This verification step is required to protect against account fraud. Here are the measures to take:

  1. After signing up, decide which verification form you want to complete. This usually means showing some form of official identification.
  2. You’ll need to provide photos of both sides of the document to prove its authenticity. Make sure that the pictures are readable.
  3. The verification procedure will commence once you have submitted the requested documentation. Verification may take up to 48 hours, so you must be patient.
  4. Your subscription price will be fully refunded if your account is not confirmed within the specified time.

After signing up for Meta Verified and passing the verification procedure, you will get a blue checkmark next to your username on meta platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Threads.

Whether you sign up for Threads before or after applying for Meta Verified will not affect your verification status. Meta Verified is an independent service that ensures your identity across these social networks.
