How do I request a verified badge for my Instagram profile?

To request a verified badge, you must be a public figure, celebrity or brand and meet certain account and eligibility requirements.

To request a verified badge:

Instagram app for Android and iPhone and Instagram Lite app for Android
  1. Make sure you're logged in to the account you're requesting a verified badge for.
  2. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.

  3. Tap in the top right, then tap instagram-settingsSettings.

  4. Tap Account, then tap Request Verification.
  5. Enter your full name and provide the required form of identification (example: government-issued photo ID).

Keep in mind that even if your account is eligible for verification, submitting a request doesn't guarantee that your account will be verified. Learn what happens after you apply for verification.
