Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is set to charge its users for blue tick verification.
Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Meta, announced this in a recent post on his Facebook page.
He said the company would roll out the new product offering, “Meta Verified” service in Australia and New Zealand before the end of the week.
According to him, the subscription service will enable users to verify their handles for a fee using government IDs.
The statement read: “This week we’re starting to roll out Meta Verified — a subscription service that lets you verify your account with a government ID, get a blue badge, get extra impersonation protection against accounts claiming to be you, and get direct access to customer support.
“This new feature is about increasing authenticity and security across our services. Meta Verified starts at $11.99/month on the web or $14.99 / month on iOS.
“We’ll be rolling out in Australia and New Zealand this week and more countries soon.”
