What is verification and why is it necessary?
Verification confirms that a profile or community belongs to a real person or organization. However, a check mark doesn’t mean that the actions of this person or organization are automatically approved by the VK Administration. The verification mark helps you distinguish official communities and profiles with up-to-date information from among fan communities and thematic groups.

What are the advantages of verification?
  • A higher position in search results
  • More trust from users
  • Additional protection from clones and hackers

Who can be verified?
  • Artists, bloggers, athletes and others with a dedicated follower base, who are popular not only on a large scale, but locally as well.
  • Communities that belong to businesses, cultural facilities, educational institutions and other organizations.

How do I get verified?
In your profile’s settings (vk.com/settings) or the community’s Manage section, there’s a special button to apply for verification. This is only possible on the desktop version of the website. When filling out the application form, it’s important that you tell about yourself and your accomplishments in detail, but keep in mind that performances, interviews, media publications, etc., should be under a year old.
