Additional information
When submitting a request to verify an account, we ask for
additional information that can help us evaluate it. Here are some
tips to keep in mind:
• We’ll ask you to tell us why we should verify an account. If the
account represents a person, we want to understand their
impact in their field. If it represents a corporation or company,
let us know their mission.
• When providing URLs to support your request, choose sites that
help express the account holder’s newsworthiness or relevancy
in their field.
• We may request that you scan and upload a legible copy of your
government-issued ID (such as a passport or driver’s license)
to confirm your identity.
