Meta Verified India Pricing for Facebook, Instagram Blue Tick, More Benefits Reportedly Revealed
Meta Verified was launched earlier this year in February. Although inspired by Elon Musk’s Twitter Blue plan, Meta Verified is a subscription-based service that verifies each profile with a legitimate government ID. The program has already been rolled out in Australia and New Zealand before launching in the United States earlier this month. It starts at $11.99 (about 990 rupees) per month for an authenticated account. Now, the platform has reportedly opened a waiting list for its Indian users and the subscription price has been leaked.
A report from Indian Express says that Meta Verified subscription will be available for Indian users at Rs. 1,450 per month on mobile. To access Facebook and Instagram websites on the web, subscription would cost Rs. 1,099. Meta Verified will not only add a blue tick to subscribed Instagram and Facebook accounts but it will also add an extra layer of protection by reducing the risk of impersonation since each verified will be authenticated via a government-approved ID.
The subscription will also offer more direct and faster customer support, and increased reach. Meta Verified only applies to personal profiles of adult individuals as of now and is not yet available for businesses or individuals under 18.
As it is still in its beta testing phase in India, Meta asks users to join a waiting list for the Meta Verified subscription. Users can also access the waitlist form from the Meta website.
Meanwhile, Twitter Blue, the subscription-based verification idea that arguably prompted Meta to work toward its Verified plan, is available in India at Rs. 900 per month on iOS and Android Twitter, while web-based access costs Rs. 650 per month.
