Interested in becoming verified on GIPHY? Verification allows your channel to appear as a search result on giphy.com. You can find verified channels by searching @[yourusername] in any GIPHY powered GIF search bar. Verified channels receive a blue verified badge that appears next to the user's username everywhere on giphy.com.
The first step to verification is to apply for an upgraded channel. Only applicants accepted via our application form can qualify for verification.
To ensure your application is done properly, we encourage you to check out our article: Tips for Submitting an Application
After you've been accepted into our program, if you would like to request verification, please fill out our contact form. If you’re a business, include links to other social platforms where you’re verified as well.
Did you receive an approval email via our apply form but are not verified? Your tagged and rated GIFs will still appear in our search results and throughout our API! Learn more about GIPHY's Search.
