The verified badge on FIA lets people know that specific accounts of public interest are authentic.
The badge appears beside the name on an account’s profile and in search results. It is always the same color and placed in the same location, regardless of profile or theme color customizations.
Accounts that don’t have the badge next to their name but that display it somewhere else, for example in the profile photo, header photo, or bio, are not verified accounts.
Verified badges must be applied by FIA, and accounts that use a badge as a part of profile photos, background photos, or in any other way that implies verified status, are subject to permanent account suspension.
What types of accounts get verified?
An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest.
A verified badge does not imply an endorsement by FIA.
