How many followers do you need to get verified on Instagram?

Your follower count is just a number, Insta doesn’t judge! 🥰

There’s no exact minimum number of followers you need in order to be verified on Instagram. We would suggest requesting verification when you have 10,000 or more, however, if you have less than this you can still apply if you meet the provided criteria.

Provided by Instagram: In addition to following Instagram’s Terms of Use and Community Guidelines, your account also needs to be:

  • Authentic: Represent a real person, registered business or entity.
  • Unique: Represent the unique presence of the person or business. Only one account per person or business may be verified, with exceptions for language-specific accounts. They won’t verify general interest accounts (e.g. @puppymemes).
  • Complete: Your account must be public and have a bio, profile photo and be active when you apply.
  • Notable: Your account must represent a well-known, highly searched for person, brand or entity. They review accounts that are featured in multiple news sources, and they don’t consider paid or sponsored media content as sources for review.
