Verifying your Instagram account seems one of the most complicated tasks to deal with Facebook. The truth is that verify an Instagram account has sometimes become our particular nightmare to get the famous blue badge in the accounts of some celebrities with whom we have worked. Today I tell you what we did.
Rumors say that to verify an Instagram account you have to be famous, have a certain number of followers or have a company Instagram account and a verified Facebook page. But, as this blog is not going to ignore the rumors, but to check each of the things I tell, we will see how we can make the request.
I’m not going to tell you what a blue badge is for, as do the rest of mediocre posts written about it, simply because if you’re reading this it’s because you already know what it is and what you want. 🙂
VERIFY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT: THE TRUTH
I’m not going to cheat you, in this post I’m not going to sell you any motorcycle or the blue verification badge. I will simply try to summarize how you can make the request to report an impersonation as a way to verify your Instagram account, which does not always mean you can get it since, unfortunately, it is Instagram itself that has the final decision to check.
In summary: The only thing you can do is fill out the form to report the impersonation in order to verify your account. Do not listen to post or videos that say how to get it. Simply because it is a lie. I have come to help you request it, not to get it. For the record.
In this Instagram link (which is useless), shared by several blogs that follow the easy click, they tell us that “At this moment, only some public figures, celebrities and brands have verified badges. At this time, it is not possible to request or purchase a verification badge. ” Paparruchas, we have seen verifications in profiles that were not celebrities and did not have 100,000 followers. Tururú. Let’s go for it.

Now attach your identity document, click on browse and add the image in JPG format. Try to do this from computer, on mobile or iPad sometimes gives problems. And below, insert the text: other fakes accounts *.
(*) Update 04/03/2018: INSTAGRAM ALREADY DOES NOT ALLOW TO INSERT THE TEXT “OTHER FAKES ACCOUNTS” IN THIS SECTION. HERE YOU WILL HAVE TO INDICATE THE USER NAME THAT YOU WANT TO REPORT BY BEING SUPLANTING OR ATTEMPTING TO SUPPLY THE IDENTITY OF THE ACCOUNT YOU WANT TO VERIFY.

Explain to Insta’s majo why he has to verify your Instagram account or profile. If you are thinking about leaving it blank: error, it is mandatory field. And the times that we have tried to insert points or characters at random, we have not achieved much. Come, you can.
