What is Verified on TikTok?
Being verified means that there is the small blue badge with checkmark on your profile. Previously Verified TikTok profiles had little crown icon, but it is replaced with the Verified checkmark and the text Verified Account.
Having a Verified profile gives the profile authenticity and builds trust. Verified profiles also attract more followers and engagement.
Many of the Verified profiles are actual pop stars, musicians and celebrities, but this doesn't prevent you from also being Verified.
What is Popular Creator badge?
Popular Creator badge is another way to be verified on TikTok. TikTok gives Popular Creator badge to profiles that have a good amount of followers on TikTok and posts content that gets a lot of views and many likes and shares.
TikTok team continuously checks popular accounts and automatically add Popular Creator badges to popular profiles with high quality content. So you you will get it automatically when you are eligible for that.
How to be Verified on TikTok?
Create good content
TikTok gives Verified badges to profiles that create high quality content consistently and awards for that. So make sure you are filming in well lighted environment and produce high quality videos. No one wants to see shaky videos that are shot in someone's bedroom.
Get followers
Most of the Verified profiles have high amount of followers. Even though this is not an absolute requirement for Verified profile, it will definitely help you to be Verified.
Know the latest songs
If you have been using TikTok for a while, you probably have noticed that the same songs and hashtags keep repeating over and over again. Don't be afraid to use them! TikTok favors popular songs, and wants that people use them! Using popular songs and hashtags will help you get your content on For You page and get more followers.
Be verified on other social medias
This one is probably the best way to get verification on TikTok. We have seen profiles with only 100 followers to be verified. That is only because they are verified on three different social medias. This includes YouTube and Instagram among others.
So get verified on other social medias and link them to your TikTok profile.
