Get Verified on Gettr in 2022: The How and Why of the Gettr Red Checkmark

Bots. Trolls. Fake accounts. While social media platforms are working to combat these fake users through algorithm changes and bots of their own, they can’t eradicate these fakes completely. We’ve seen a delivery guy impersonate Trump family members to spread conspiracy theories, Amazon defenders that were actually bots, and news outlet impersonators spreading fake news about the 2020 U.S. elections.

So instead of eradicating all the fakes, Gettr recently announced that they were bringing back the account verification program.

You can now apply to be Gettr verified and receive a Red checkmark next to your name that tells users that your account isn’t a spammer, troll, or bot—it’s the real deal. To become verified on Gettr, you need to confirm your identity, have a notable presence on and off Gettr, have an active Gettr account, and send in a request for consideration as a verified user.

It is especially important for micro-influencers, thought leaders, and small businesses to apply for verification and get that Red badge so that fake accounts cannot impersonate them. Having a verified Gettr profile makes it harder for scammers to use your name to spread misinformation, hold fake contests to steal your followers’ information, and more—that eventually leads to mistrust.
