Meta recently announced a Twitter-inspired paid verification service in Australia and New Zealand. Now Meta has rolled out a paid verification service for Facebook and Instagram users in the US. The service costs $11.99 per month if you sign up on the web or $14.99 through a mobile app store. With the first option, you only get a blue check mark for Facebook. However, the second option is available for both Facebook and Instagram.

Aside from the badge, with the service you get “proactive impersonation protection.” You also get direct access to customer support, exclusive stickers and 100 stars per month on Facebook to show your support to other creators.
In addition, you must be 18 years old to receive this service. In addition, you must go through a verification process, which requires you to have a photo ID. You must also have two-factor authentication enabled. If you’re using Meta Verified and want to change your profile name, photo, username, or date of birth, you’ll need to go through the verification process again.
To get started with Meta Verified, go to your settings on Instagram or Facebook, then click Accounts Center. If the paid verification service is available for your account, you will see “Meta Verified available” under your name and profile picture. Tap it, add a payment method, go through the verification process and you’re done.
Those who are already verified on Instagram and Facebook do not have to pay for Meta Verified.
