Like other social media apps, TikTok offers these little blue confirmation badges for high-profile accounts. However, if you would like to receive one of these blue checks for your own account, we are sorry to inform you that there is no specific method for obtaining one. You cannot ask to be verified as you can on other platforms. TikTok decides for itself whether your account is worthy of the blue checkmark.
Although there is no way to officially apply for a check in TikTok, the social networking service set out a few expectations that bills must meet to get confirmation in TikTok. So, in our handy guide below, we’ll look at these expectations for checking in at TikTok to give you the best chance of being confirmed.
TikTok defines “active” only as having logged in to your account in the last six months, but that in itself does not mean that you will be active enough to get the attention you need to be considered remarkable enough. for a blue check. This may be true for a celebrity, but ambitious TikTok stars should probably expect to post content consistently to their accounts.
Part of cultivating an audience is making sure you have a steady stream of content for your fans. And when it comes to building an audience, TikTok actually recommends “Publish 3-5 videos per week” to increase your audience
For TikTok, “authentic” simply means that your account has a real person or brand behind it.
It is also important to make sure that your account is completed and configured correctly. Make sure you’ve set up your account as public and that your account is fully populated with the following: name, photo, resume, and at least one video.
To set up your TikTok account as public:
Choose Profile icon> Select the three horizontal lines Menu icon> Select Settings and privacy > confidentiality > Turn the switch to Private account in the off position (gray)> Select Confirm.
TikTok emphasizes that their confirmation badges are primarily about helping users distinguish between the official accounts of their favorite notable people and fake accounts, so the platform is great to make sure you’re what you say you are. and that as far as your account is concerned, you remain so – which means that your account must be protected from others who might try to access it.
TikTok prefers multi-factor authentication and verified email. Multifactor Authentication (MFA) simply means that there is an additional step to log in to your account. You will be logged in with your username and password, and then you will usually be prompted for a temporary code that only you will have access to.
This code is usually only available on a device that only you can access, such as your phone. That way, even if someone else gets your MFA-enabled username and password, they still won’t have access to your account because they won’t be able to get that temporary code.
You can access the MFA option in TikTok by: Selecting Profile > the three horizontal lines Menu icon> Settings and privacy > Security and entry> Select Confirmation in 2 steps. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.
TikTok actually requires you to be remarkable – for example, there must be news about you that is not included in the news only once, but several times. They also know what do not do is considered a source of news:
- Sponsored or paid content
- Press releases
This probably seems difficult to you, and it seems to you that you need to be tested and a real viral star.
TikTok also mentions that the uniqueness of the account is one of the factors they take into account when it comes to verification – but they don’t give much guidance beyond that.
But when we thought of some of our favorite TikTokers with blue checks, who aren’t necessarily famous musicians or actors, we noticed that the content they produce is unique and memorable. Some TikTokers have a unique way of telling stories about their lives (such as Elise Myers), and others create uniquely entertaining and informative videos about their interests (such as Alexis Nicole Nelson and her food search videos).
However, it is worth making sure that your videos are a reflection of what makes you unique. Maybe that’s what ultimately makes you stand out and be remarkable.
