Instagram has announced that it is adding a range of new security features to its accounts to keep your accounts safe.
They are also adding a new About this Account feature , which gives details on when the person joined, which country they are in and more.
In addition to the “About This Account” feature, the blue verified badge is an important way for you to know that the account you are interacting with is the authentic presence of a notable public figure, celebrity, global brand or entity. Today we are enabling a new way for accounts that reach large audiences and meet our criteria to request verification through a form within the Instagram app.
To be verified, an account must comply with Instagram’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. We will review verification requests to confirm the authenticity, uniqueness, completeness and notability of each account. Visit the Help Center to learn more about Instagram’s verification criteria.
