- What is a verified account?
A verified account is a profile that appears with a cover photo in addition to the profile picture. It means that Sho_w. has confirmed that this is the authentic account for the athlete, public figure, celebrity or global brand it represents.
Accounts representing well-known figures and brands are verified because they have a high likelihood of being impersonated. We want to make sure that people in the Sho_w. community can easily find the authentic people and brands they want to follow.
Verified accounts are reviewed as part of our efforts to make sure that the Sho_w. experience stays authentic. Though we don't proactively monitor verified accounts for changes, we may take away an account's verified status if it posts spam or some other content that doesn't follow our Community Guidelines, uses the cover photo, profile pic, full name or bio section to promote other services, or doesn't remain public.
- Can I request a verified account for my profile?
Right now, only some athletes, public figures, celebrities and brands have verified accounts. It's not currently possible to request or purchase a verified account.
If your account isn't verified, there are other ways to help let people know that you're authentic. For example, you can link to your Sho_w. profile from your official website or other social media accounts.
