Getting verified on Instagram means that you will get a blue checkmark next to your profile name, which is a symbol of authenticity and credibility. However, getting verified on Instagram is not an easy task, and the platform has strict guidelines on who can be verified. Here are the general steps to request verification on Instagram:

1. Open the Instagram app on your mobile device and log in to your account.
2. Tap on your profile icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
3. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of the screen.
4. Go to “Settings” and tap on “Account.”
5. Tap on “Request Verification.”
6. On the verification request form, you will need to provide your full name, a photo of your government-issued ID, and a copy of a document that shows your name and date of birth (such as a passport or driver’s license).
7. You will also need to provide a brief explanation of why you should be verified, including any relevant news articles, press mentions, or other evidence of your public profile or brand.
8. Once you have submitted your verification request, Instagram will review your application and notify you of their decision via a notification in your account settings.

Keep in mind that getting verified on Instagram is not guaranteed, and the platform has strict criteria for who can be verified. Instagram typically verifies accounts that are in the public interest, have a high level of authenticity, and meet certain guidelines, such as having a complete bio, profile picture, and at least one post. If your request is denied, you can apply again after 30 days.
