What is a “Verified” Account? updated!

Verified accounts are those where Empire.Kred has verified the authenticity of the person or business to whom the account is named. This does not mean that Empire.Kred guarantees, verifies or endorses the content, followers, networks or services rendered on or off Empire.Kred by that individual or business.

How can I be a "Verified" Account? updated!

Account Verification is a service provided to those holding Silver, Gold or Platinum Premium Accounts. We manually verify the identity of the individual or business of the account. We may request government issued identification to verify the authenticity of the individuals or businesses as necessary. Verification is approved at the discretion of Empire.Kred and may take up to 7 business days to complete provided there are no issues. Verified accounts will receive a blue "V" verified sticker on their profile.

What documentation is required?

Each account may require less or more documentation. In general we will be asking for government issued documents to prove your authenticity as necessary. We apologize if we are unable to authenticate due to language or other reasons. In these cases we will try as hard as possible but may not be able to give you a Verified badge at the time of the request.

I have a Silver/Gold/Platinum account, do I automatically get Verified?

No, please request verification through our Support system and we can take it from there.

What happens if I change my name after my account is Verified?

We will reset your Verified flag every time you change your account name or web site link. You will need to re-request verification once that happens so long as you are a a subscriber to Silver, Gold or Platinum plans.

What happens if I lose the required Premium Account status?

You will keep your Verified status as long as you do not change your name or web site link. To get re-verified you will need to have the minimum Premium account service (Silver) to request verification.
