Verified Accounts

Are you an artist, brand, business, celebrity, or viral content poster? You may qualify for a verified account. Verified accounts receive a blue verified badge next to the username everywhere on to verify the authenticity of your account.

After you apply, we’ll review your account. In order to be considered, you must have a complete account: profile image, name, description, website URL, and you must have over 30 public GIFs in your account. Your number of followers will also be taken into account. If you are easily discoverable and have an audience on other platforms like Twitter, Reddit, YouTube, or Instagram, this will help your verification request. You’ll know your account has been verified if the blue check mark appears during the month after you request verification.

You do not need a verified account for your GIFs to be visible in our search results or for your account to appear in the weekly top accounts leaderboard (enable email notifications in your account settings to be notified each week of your ranking among the top 1000 accounts). Consider upgrading to Gfycat Pro in order to receive the Gfycat Pro badge next to your username along with additional benefits such as no ads. This along with a completed profile will help distinguish your account without verification.
