NEW YORK: Akin to Twitter, Instagram is considering allowing the blue tick enthusiasts to get their profiles verified.

The new 'request verification' process comes with an official request form that is accessible within the app for non-verified users, Mashable reported.

Using the feature, one will be able to provide account information and a copy of their ID to request the verification. It is to be noted that the blue tick is mentioned as reserved for notable public figures, celebrities and global brands. 

Of all the major social platforms, verification is most sought after on Instagram. The company has historically verified relatively few accounts, and until now it's never had a public-facing way for individuals to request the blue checkmark.

For now, the new form is only available in Instagram's iPhone app in Australia and a few other unspecified countries, but the company says it'll be available to Android users in those countries over the next couple weeks, according to Mashable.
