Verified status, otherwise known as "Bluecheck Verification" status on Chatter is reserved for accounts that are authentic, of public interest or have played a role in the history and evolution of the Chatter community.
The badge appears next to the name on an account's profile. Accounts that dont have the badge next to their name but that display it somewhere else, for example in the profile photo, header photo, or bio, are not verified accounts.
An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest. Typically this includes accounts maintained by users in music, acting, fashion, government, politics, religion, journalism, media, sports, business, and other key interest areas. Short or "OG" usernames do not automatically qualify for Verified status. Accounts that impersonate public figures or businesses will not be approved for Verified status.
A verified badge does not imply an endorsement by Chatter.
Verified badges must be applied by Chatter (at its sole discretion), and accounts that use a badge as a part of profile photos, background photos, or in any other way that implies verified status, are subject to permanent account suspension.
