Meta Verified is a new program that allows people to verify their identity on Facebook and Instagram. This is designed to help combat misinformation and impersonation, as well as to give users more confidence in the authenticity of the people they interact with on these platforms.
To be eligible for Meta Verified, you need to:
- Be at least 18 years old.
- Have a public or private profile that’s associated with your full name, aligns with naming standards, and has a profile picture that includes your face.
- Have two-factor authentication enabled, which may be completed after payment.
Once you’re eligible, you can apply for Meta Verified by providing a government-issued photo ID and, in some cases, a selfie video. If your application is approved, you’ll receive a verified badge on your profile, which will help to distinguish you from impersonators.
Meta Verified is a paid subscription service, but it’s relatively affordable. The cost is $11.99 per month when you subscribe on the web, or $14.99 per month when you subscribe in the app.
Meta Verified is a great initiative that will help to make Facebook and Instagram a more secure and trustworthy platform. It’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the people you’re interacting with are who they say they are.
