In order to highlight the authenticity of the channel on YouTube, the platform issues the verification badge. Let us tell you how to get it.
To get a badge, the channel must meet the following criteria:
Audience over 100,000 subscribers
It belongs to a specific creator, public person, or brand
It has all design elements: banner, description, icon, and content. It should also be active.
What does the badge do?
Functionally, nothing. The badge simply makes the channel stand out from the rest, and also helps since a channel without a check mark can get lost among other similar channels. The presence of a badge does not mean that your channel will not receive yellow icons, claims, or strikes.
My channel meets the criteria for getting a verification badge. What's next?
Fill out the form on this YouTube help page. If your channel meets the criteria, you will have a "Submit" button in the "How to apply" section. After that, your application will be reviewed by YouTube specialists.
IMPORTANT: consideration of channels for verification takes quite a long time. This applies to all channels without exception. There are no specific deadlines for consideration of applications yet. Therefore, we ask you to be patient.
