Verification Application


The pink verified badge  on 1Degree lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic.

We approve account types maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas. If you believe your account is of public interest and should be verified, this article outlines information about submitting a request.

Submitting a request

To be able to complete the form, your account must have the following:

  • A profile picture
  • A profile video
  • At least 5 slideshow photos

Additional information

When submitting a request to verify an account, we ask for additional information that can help us evaluate the request.
