Now, you don’t have to be a celebrity to be ‘blue check’ worthy. The verification process is surprisingly easy. Just go to your settings, and look for the new tab titled Request Verification. You will need to provide your account username, your full name and a copy of your legal or business identification and you’re set.

Once your request has been reviewed, you’ll receive a notification letting you know if your account has been verified or not. If your request is denied, you can submit a new request after 30 days

A verified badge is a blue check that appears next to an Instagram account’s name. It means Instagram has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of the public figure, celebrity or global brand it represents.
