Red Check Verification

How to get verified on TRUTH Social?

What does a red check next to a users profile mean?

A red check on Truth Social lets users know that an account of public interest is genuine and not an imposter, impersonation, or parody.  Red checks are reserved for VIPs in the following categories:

  • Government
  • Brands, companies
  • Journalists
  • Sports (including esports)
  • Entertainment
  • Activists, influencers

What is the process for receiving a red check?

For an account to be VIP, you must be an active user of Truth Social. Truth Social users will be considered active users upon completion of the following steps:

  • Your account must have a complete profile name with a profile image.
  • Your phone number and email address must be confirmed.
  • Your account must be actively posting content.

To be red checked on Truth Social, you will be asked to provide the following information to confirm your identity:

  • An official website that confirms you or your organization’s identity.
  • A valid official government issued identification document, like a passport or driver’s license.
  • An official email (i.e., a branded email address that matches your official website).


  • Announce on your verified Twitter or Instagram account where users can find you on Truth Social. The announcement must not be removed for six months.

What about other ways to authenticate that my account on Truth Social is me?

We are in the process of working on alternative ways of authenticating non VIP accounts. Thank you for your patience.
