New Delhi: Instagram has now opened its verification process to all the users on its platform. Instagram users who have large audiences can now request and apply for the verification through a form provided within the app.
The accounts that are verified have a blue tick next to their username which indicates that the account is genuine. Instagram will review every verified account request to check if it complies with the criteria of the company.

1. Visit your profile on Instagram and open the Settings menu.
2. Select “Request Verification” at the bottom.
3. Enter your username, full name and a copy of your legal or business identification.
4. You will receive a notification confirming or declining it, once Instagram is done reviewing your request.
