Meta rolls out paid verification for Instagram and Facebook users in the US


Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that the company is launching its paid subscription plans for Facebook and Instagram for users based in the US.

First launched in Australia and New Zealand, the “Meta Verified” plan offers a verified label, better protection against impersonation, and direct access to customer support, The Verge reports.

Subscription plans cost $11.99 per month for web and $14.99 per month for mobile.

However, the US version of Meta Verified will not provide users with the increased visibility and reach benefits that it does in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to paying the fee, users must be 18 years or older, submit a photo of their ID to the company, meet minimum activity requirements, and also have two-factor authentication enabled.

Once verified, users cannot change their username, profile name, date of birth or photo until they undergo verification again, the report said.

Last month inspired by Elon Musk-run Twitter, Meta announced it was testing payment verification for Instagram and Facebook.

Later, the company launched a paid subscription plan for users based in Australia and New Zealand.
