What does a verified Telegram Account means?
A verified badge is a check that appears next to a Telegram account’s name on the profile. It means Telegram has confirmed that an account is an authentic figure and reliable. It helps differentiate real accounts from among fake accounts.
Note: Verification doesn’t give any additional abilities in Telegram – it is simply one of the ways to demonstrate that your channel is official.
Can my user account be verified?
Sorry, Telegram doesn’t verify user accounts at the moment. Verification is only available for big and active official channels and bots.
How to get a Verified Telegram Account?
The Telegram team generally verifies active official channels, bots or public groups that have verified accounts on each of these services:
- Facebook or Instagram (one is enough)
Before starting a verification process please add a link to your Telegram channel to your profiles on these services(Twitter, Facebook, or Youtube) — so that the Telegram Team can confirm that they indeed belong to you.
Once this is done, you can proceed to @VerifyBot for the verification process.
Go to the @VerifyBot and click start. The bot will ask you to send the username of the channel, bot, or the public group. Press continue now button and further you will be asked to enter the verified account username on twitter, Facebook & Youtube.
Once the twitter, Facebook & Youtube username matched with the telegram username you will receive the verification badge.
Note: If your usual short link is taken on Telegram and you are using the exact same username on other networks, you can claim it for your channel, bot or public group. To do this, contact @username_bot before verification.
