Bye, Twitter. All the cool kids are migrating to Mastodon.

However, Mastodon has nothing to do with verification or any such process. Mashable And while some things have changed on Mastodon, it remains true that “there is no official verification process”.

So what can do How do you get verified on Mastodon if you don’t have a profile?

In fact, there is no official verification process for profiles, as Mastodon says, “document-based verification and blue ticks are not possible without a central authority.” The company can, however, verify links – Mastodon cross-references links on people’s profiles to confirm that they are the owner. According to the platform, it “could serve as the next best thing to identity verification.”

So, if you place a link in your Mastodon profile, the company “checks whether the linked page links back to your Mastodon profile. If so, you get a verification checkmark next to that link, Because you are confirmed as the owner.” The company does this by checking the rel=”me” attribute – a standard way of checking whether a linked website belongs to a user on a third party site. Sounds confusing, as it does with Mastodon a lot, but essentially you’ll get a verification checkmark for your link – though not necessarily your profile.

Mastodon offers some tips for passing verification, making sure the link you’re adding is served securely (over HTTPS) and hosting Mastodon on your own domain.

Alternatively, as Mashable did a few years ago (see our DIY steps below), just add a checkmark emoji next to your name. Tumblr would be proud — after all, it’s currently offering two worthless blue checks to any user willing to pay $7.99. , MN

Curious and a little skeptical to see if something so simple could be happening in life, I created an account to see for myself, and to my surprise, within the first five minutes of my mastodon life, I too was verified. was.
