To be eligible for a meta verified subscription, users must be 18 years or older. We will walk you through the necessary steps, requirements, and important information you need to know. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Eligibility and Profile Selection
To begin, make sure you meet the age requirement of 18 years or older. This is essential to be eligible for the Meta Verified subscription. Once you meet the age criteria, choose the profile for which you want the verification. Whether it’s your Instagram or Facebook account, select the profile you wish to verify.
Step 2: Setting Up Payment Method
After selecting the profile, the next step is to set up your payment method. Meta offers various payment options to choose from, ensuring convenience and flexibility. Select the payment method that suits you best and proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Verification Process
To ensure the authenticity of your account, the verification process requires two important components: a government-issued ID and a selfie video. These steps are crucial to confirm your identity and maintain the integrity of the Meta Verified subscription.
Step 4: Government-Issued ID
You will need to provide a government-issued ID document, such as a passport or driver’s license. Make sure the information on your ID matches the profile name and photo of the Instagram or Facebook account you are applying for verification.
Step 5: Selfie Video Confirmation
Alongside the government-issued ID, you will need to submit a selfie video. This video helps in confirming that the person in the ID matches the account holder. Follow the instructions provided by Meta to record and submit the required selfie video.
Important Note: Profile Changes and Verification
Once your profile is verified, it’s important to note that certain changes cannot be made without going through the Meta Verified subscription and verification application process again. Specifically, you won’t be able to change your username or date of birth on your profile. Ensure that you have accurate information before completing the verification process.
Account Not Verified and Refunds
If, for any reason, your account is not verified, don’t worry. Meta understands the value of your investment. In such cases, your money will be refunded, ensuring a fair process and customer satisfaction.
