Getting a verification badge on Instagram or Facebook (not to be confused with verifying your identity) is like going through a rite of passage for influencers, brands, and celebrities. With it comes all the honors of having been verified as an authentic, complete, and well-known account.

So, it’s only natural that you would want a verification badge on Threads, as well. 

Threads is the all-new social media platform from Instagram and Facebook’s parent company, Meta. Despite only having just launched on July 5th, 2023, it’s already met with enormous success and has become hugely popular. 

But just like all new social media apps, Threads is far from perfect. For one thing, it’s missing some features that are inherent in its sister platforms – such as a native verification badge application. 

Fortunately, there is a path to get verified on Threads. It starts with your Instagram account. 

Threads and Instagram: It’s All Connected

Did you know that Threads and Instagram are connected? 

You may have guessed that already if you already have an Instagram account. The app has been sending notifications to users, letting them know that the Threads platform is available to use. You can even access Threads from Instagram by going to your profile and tapping on Settings

No doubt, Meta knew what they were doing when they connected Threads to Instagram. With 2 billion existing users to tap into, all they had to do was make it easy for all of them to create a Threads account. Currently, it takes less than 10 seconds to register an account on Threads. 

In addition to a seamless sign-up, Instagram users also enjoy another great feature: the ability to get verification badges for their Threads accounts. 

This is important because if you don’t have an Instagram account, there’s no way to get verified on Threads that’s native to the app. 

If you’re already verified on Instagram, then we have good news: you should already have received a verification badge on Threads when it copied over automatically from your account on the other app.

If you’re not verified on Instagram, there are two ways you can get a verification badge: by subscribing to Meta Verified or by applying for it on Instagram.

How To Get Verified on Threads Through Meta Verified

Meta Verified is a subscription service offered to Instagram and Facebook users. By paying a monthly fee, you can receive a blue verified checkmark on your profile, providing you can authenticate your identity.

In addition to the verification badge, they also get other features, like proactive account monitoring and special posting features.

It costs $14.99 a month to get Meta Verified for the Instagram app. If you’re interested in getting verified on Threads by this method, here’s how to do it. 

Step #1: Open the Instagram app.

Step #2: Tap on your profile and then tap the three lines in the upper right-hand corner

Step #3: Tap Meta Verified.

Step #4: Tap Subscribe. (Meta is gradually rolling out Meta Verified, so if it tells you that it’s not available in your location yet, tap Join the waitlist. It will let you know when this feature becomes available in your location.)

Step #5: Verify your identity with a government-issued ID and a selfie.

Once you’re subscribed and Meta has verified your identity, you will receive a blue checkmark. After this, check your Threads account. It should also display a blue verification badge next to your username.

How To Get Verified on Threads By Applying on Instagram

If you’re not interested in paying for Meta Verified, there’s another way to get verified on Instagram. 

Step #1: Open the Instagram app. 

Step #2: Tap your profile and tap the three lines in the upper right-hand corner to access Settings.

Step #3: Scroll down and tap Account type and Tools

Step #4: Tap Request verification.

Step #5: Provide all the information Instagram requires to authenticate your identity. Then tap Submit.


Keep in mind that Instagram won’t approve your verification request right away. They may also decide not to approve it at all, even if you’ve properly authenticated yourself. If you aren’t a well-known public figure, for example, you may need to re-apply after you get more followers.

Once you do get your Instagram verification badge, though, you’ll see it attached to your Threads profile, as well.
