SoundCloud profile verification: How it works and what it means for creators

Are you a SoundCloud creator who wants to stand out from the crowd? Then you'll be excited to know that SoundCloud has their own profile verification with official blue check marks. This means that well-known artists are able to maintain their authenticity and fans are able to identify them more easily.


What is profile verification and how does it work?

Profile verification is a way for SoundCloud to confirm that an account represents a well-known and/or highly searched-for artist, collective, DJ, label, curator, or podcaster. The account must be unique and not a fan account or impersonator. SoundCloud's team will review the account, which could take up to 30 days, and if it meets the requirements, an official blue checkmark will be added to the profile.


Why is this important?

Verification helps eliminate confusion between the Pro star badges and official verification. Additionally, it allows creators to stand out and maintain their authenticity, making it easier for fans to find and connect with them.


How can you apply for verification?

If you're a creator who wants to request verification, make sure your account meets the requirements, including having a bio, profile photo and at least one track uploaded. Then, log on to on your desktop, head to your settings, and click on the "Request verification" button. 


SoundCloud's profile verification is an exciting feature for creators who want to stand out on the platform. By following the requirements and applying for verification, you'll be able to showcase your authenticity and connect with fans more easily.
