  • Meta is testing its 'verified' subscription service, similar to Twitter Blue, for Facebook and Instagram in India.
  • Interested users are being asked to join a waitlist.
  • Here’s how you can join the waiting list and get verified.
Meta has started testing its verification service in India, which means you can now join the waitlist to get a blue tick on Facebook and Instagram. The subscription fee for the service is ₹1,450 per month if you subscribe through the app on your Android/ iPhone. However, subscribing through the web will cost you less, at ₹1,099 per month. Meta won't have to share a cut with Google/Apple for web subscriptions.

Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of Meta Verified in February to increase authenticity and security across Meta services. The service was first launched in Australia and New Zealand and was later rolled out in the US after good results from early testing.

What Meta verified badge offers

Mark Zuckerberg said that Meta Verified aims to improve its services' authenticity and security. Subscribing to Meta Verified will give you a verified badge, and Meta will protect your account from impersonation attempts. This means that if anyone tries to impersonate you, Meta will take action to stop them. As a subscriber, you can access real customer support instead of a bot. You can contact Meta for assistance if you can't see a user's profile picture. Moreover, Meta claims that paying the monthly fees will increase your visibility and expand your reach. Your content will appear more frequently in people's feeds, search results, and comments.
