(Reuters) – Meta Platforms on Sunday announced a subscription service, called Meta Verified, which will let users verify their accounts using a government ID and get a blue badge.
The subscription bundle for Instagram and Facebook also includes extra protection against impersonation and will be priced starting $11.99 per month on the web or $14.99 a month on Apple’s iOS system.
Meta Verified will be rolled out in Australia and New Zealand this week.
