Verification on Mastodon

Verifying your identity on Mastodon is for everyone. Based on open web standards, now and forever free.


You do not need to submit your documents anywhere, so there is no chance of them being leaked.

For everyone

You do not have to be a celebrity to verify your identity. You just need to have a website or web page.


There is no need to trust a central authority. The verification can be manually confirmed anytime.

There is no blue badge

Identity is not a yes or no question. There are few truly unique names in the world, so why should only the famous ones get a "yes"? At Mastodon, we don't rely on legal names and blue badges. Instead, we rely on the fact that people can be identified by their official websites.

Here's how

Put a link to your Mastodon profile on your website or webpage. The important part is that the link has to have a rel="me" attribute on it. Then edit your Mastodon profile and put the address of your website or web page in one of your four profile fields. Save your profile, that's it!
