Meta has launched a paid verification service for Facebook and Instagram users in the US. This service was initially available only in Australia and New Zealand and has now been extended to the US. The service is inspired by Twitter’s verification process.
Meta’s new paid verification service for Facebook and Instagram in the US costs either $11.99 per month on the web or $14.99 through a mobile app store, with the latter option including verification for both platforms. The service provides a blue checkmark badge, proactive impersonation protection, direct customer support, exclusive stickers, and 100 monthly Stars on Facebook to support other creators.
To use Meta’s new paid verification service for Facebook and Instagram in the US, you must be at least 18 years old and go through a verification process that requires a photo ID and two-factor authentication. If you make changes to your profile information, such as name, photo, username, or date of birth, you will need to go through the verification process again.
To use Meta’s paid verification service for Facebook and Instagram in the US, go to your account settings and click on Accounts Center. If the service is available for your account, you can click “Meta Verified available” and follow the process to add a payment method and go through verification.
Existing verified users on Facebook and Instagram do not have to pay for Meta’s new paid verification service called “Meta Verified.” However, this exemption applies only until Meta eliminates the “legacy” verification badges.
