You probably have seen it, the blue tick on the channel of your favorite creator. If you want to get verified on TikTok yourself, here is how you do it.
TikTok has become one, if not, the biggest social media and content platform on the internet. It's content even spreads throughout other platforms like Instagram or YouTube, creating viral trends and making people famous. There even is an increasing number of celebrities, like Will Smith, using the platform.
Influencers trying to make it big, on any social media platform really, first need to get acknowledged. For this reason, the importance of the small blue tick next to a user's name, signifying that the channel has been verified, has become increasingly important.
So you want to get verified on TikTok yourself? Or maybe you are just curious how TikTok picks who to verify. Anyway, here is what you need to know.
How To Get Verified on TikTok
The answer is actually pretty vague. According to TikTok, an account gets verified when it has been confirmed that it belongs to the user it represents. This explains pretty much nothing.
Obviously, they would have to check, if the account belongs to the person it represents. But how do they do that? Well, the account needs to be "authentic, unique, active" and, well, of course, adhere to the community guidelines.
Uhm. Yeah. But what does that mean? I bet there are tons of accounts that are not verified, even though they are unique, authentic and active. Celebrities probably get verified within a week or something while users that are just trying to grow, might not get verified at all.
The problem is that, unlike other social media platforms, TikTok doesn't have the possibility to apply for verification. So, I guess the people responsible for the whole thing, have to just stumble across your account to be able to verify it.
If you want to get verified and make it big on TikTok, I guess you should just be authentic, unique, active, have a couple million followers already, so they notice you, starred in a few movies and adhere to community guidelines. Easy!
