Blue Instagram check how to get it in 2018
Great news still come from Instagram, the most popular social network to share photos, used and in vogue of the moment.
Apparently, Instagram will soon allow all users to request verification of the profile directly from the application and then get the blue check will be much easier for everyone.
Want to know how to verify your Instagram account and get the legendary blue check next to your username?
Well, I immediately want to be clear and give you the bad news: it’s not for everyone and obviously you have to have good reasons to deserve it.
But soon you will have the possibility to request it directly from Instagram.
Here are all the details.
WHAT IS THE BLUE CHECK OF INSTAGRAM?
As you’ve probably noticed, some Instagram profiles, at least the most famous ones, have a blue tick next to the name.
This coveted blue check on Instagram simply means that the profile in question actually belongs to the person who manages it, certifies that the profile is verified and that it is not a fake.
The blue check not only allows the profile of Instagram to be noticed more between the searches, but obviously more credibility to the profile, which immediately appears more secure and authoritative.
That’s why everyone would like this blue check on Instagram, but only a few have it.
Indeed, if you are not known or a public figure, you can hardly be “elegible” to get the verification.
ONLY THE FAMOUS PROFILES HAVE THE BLUE CHECK ON INSTAGRAM?
You will also have noticed that not only the famous profiles have this blue check on Instagram: sometimes even users who have a few thousand followers still have the blue check and the verified profile on Instagram.
It is therefore not necessary to have millions of followers to get the blue check mark on Instagram.
But there are other requirements (some of which are not very clear) to get the blue check on Instagram.
HOW CAN I HAVE THE BLUE CHECK ON INSTAGRAM?
Unfortunately, to date, it is Instagram that decides which profiles can have the blue check and the verified profile.
To date, getting blue on Instagram has not been easy, and in 99% of cases, only famous people, public or global brands have managed to get this blue check of the profile.
As anticipated, in all cases it was directly Instagram to activate the blue check, without users doing anything to request or obtain it.
In principle, however, until now these were the requirements to get the blue check on Instagram:
- You are an artist: actor, singer, dancer, musician etc. therefore connected to the world of art, entertainment or entertainment
- You are a public figure, appeared on television, in TV programs or with mentions in relevant magazines
- You have a solid online presence, ie links, mentions, articles that talk about you
- Wikipedia account or interviews on online sites of national/international relevance
- You already have a verified profile on other social networks (it may help but is not sure)
- It is NOT connected to the number of followers
- It is not easy to verify it simply if you are an influencer or have a large following
These are just some general indications to get the blue check on Instagram, ce
SOON THE THINGS WILL CHANGE
All this, however, will soon no longer be valid.
In fact, Instagram is working to allow all users to request the verification of the profile and then the blue check directly from the application.
Contrary to the past, we can request verification of the Instagram profile in a click and, if we are approved, the check will appear next to our name Instagram.
Obviously not all the profiles that will request will get the blue check on Instagram, but at least starting the next few weeks it will be easier to request verification of the Instagram account directly from the application and try to get the blue check.
HOW DO I GET THE BLUE CHECK ON INSTAGRAM?
In the coming weeks the Instagram app for Android and iOS will be updated and, as you can see from the screen, directly from the Settings users can select the “Request verification”.
You will need to provide a username, full name and a photo of an ID.
Once that is done, it will be necessary to wait for Instagram to approve (or reject) the request. If successful, your Instagram profile will have the famous blue check and will be verified.
Among the factors that will influence the evaluation of Instagram regarding the blue check for your profile, surely there will still be:
- profile completeness
Although it will be easier to request verification of the Instagram account, therefore, it is said that you will manage to get the blue check on the social network. You can at least try it more easily.
MOVES TO CONTRAST THE SALE OF BLUE CHECK ON INSTAGRAM
This move by Instagram, however, was also implemented to counter the purchase of profiles with blue stocks, which have reached figures of around $ 15,000 or more.
Not forgetting all the users who make themselves pay promising to ensure the blue check mark on Instagram, leaving the buyers with a handful of flies in hand.
A few months ago, in fact, a kind of scandal connected to the “dark world” broke out behind the verification of accounts. Mashable had also talked about it. In practice, apparently, the money round behind the verification was born precisely because they were few to have access to the request page verification of the Instagram profile.
With this move, the social network has blocked all this, since every user can make an independent and free request.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS NEWS?
As we have seen, getting a blue check on Instagram is not at all simple, especially if you’re not a famous person.
Working hard is definitely the best advice you can give to those who aspire to get to that check, there are no shortcuts to get it, you just have to deserve it.
Soon at least you will have the opportunity to “apply” to get it, without waiting for it to be automatically Instagram to give it to you. Of course it will not be easier to get it though.
