Last September, YouTube announced that it was changing its processes on how creators can apply for a Verification badge, and what the requirements would be moving forward. This week, YouTube has provided an update on this process, including a full overview of how you can go about getting a verification badge for your channel.
First off, in order to qualify for a YouTube Verification badge, you need at least 100k subscribers to your channel. That’s a pretty significant undertaking, so it’s not widely available to everyone. But if you’re really keen on a YouTube verification stamp, this is the first requirement of the process. YouTube does make some exceptions on this front for public figures known outside of YouTube.
