How to Apply for a Verified Musician Account on Instagram?

Hi Apprise Music artiste!

You will be granted a verified badge when you successfully get verified as a musician on Instagram.


What are the requirements to apply for a verified badge on Instagram?



An account eligible for verification must represent a real person, entity, or business.



An account eligible for verification must represent the unique presence of the person or business. You should be reflected as a single individual musician to filter out people who try to verify multiple accounts.



Your account must be public, filled out profile. A profile picture, an account bio, and at least one post should be on your account when you apply for verification.



Last but not least, an account eligible for verification must represent a well-known, highly searched person, brand or entity. This might be the most challenging requirement to meet, and thus you should get prepared for it.

How do I request a verified badge for my Instagram profile?

  1. Make sure that you’re logged in to your Instagram account you’re requesting a verified badge for.
  2. Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to your profile.
  3. Tap the more options button of three lines in the top right, then tap Settings.
  4. Tap Account, then tap Request verification.
  5. Enter your full name and provide the required form of identification (e.g. government-issued photo ID or official business documents).
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.


You are almost there!


Once Instagram has reviewed your request, you’ll receive a notification in Activity up to 30 days after applying, letting you know whether your account has been verified or not. You can tap in the top right to see notifications in Activity.


However, please bear in mind that even if your account is eligible for verification, submitting a request doesn’t guarantee that your account will be verified.


What can I benefit from a verified musician account on Instagram? 


  1. You will get more chances for your music promotion. For example, news media and the public will apparently show more interest in your content.
  2. For musicians verified by Instagram, music fans will trust your content to be more credible.
  3. If you want to improve your fan engagement, Instagram verification is an invaluable way of doing so.
  4. Verification on Instagram shows your account notability.
