Social network X has introduced a new feature for its paid subscribers, allowing them to verify their accounts using government-issued documents. This measure aims to combat fake accounts, which often impersonate other individuals, and maintain the platform’s reputation.
Stringent Verification Policy
The updated “Verification Policy” of platform X grants the administration the right to request a government identification document from users when necessary. Additionally, the company is actively exploring further measures to safeguard users from spam, potentially harmful accounts, and age-inappropriate content.
Partnership with AU10TIX
Exclusive Benefits for Subscribers
For users with paid subscriptions who submit government documents, the social network promises various benefits. These include priority customer support, a simplified verification process, increased profile flexibility (some features still under development), and a documented proof of identity noted on the user’s profile.
Additional Verification Scenarios
The social network’s administration has outlined scenarios for potential re-verification using documents, adds NIX Solutions. These include changes in account name or purpose, transitions of ownership, and for unspecified “security reasons.” While many countries can provide a passport for verification, a comprehensive list is unavailable. Notably, residents of the European Union, the European Economic Area, and the UK are exempt due to strict data protection laws. X plans to expand the program’s scope in the future.
