Verified Account (same criteria applies with all other forms of verification unless mentioned otherwise)

The Blue with black background Verified badge on HypeBlu lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic. To receive the verified badge, your account must be authentic, notable, and active.


To encourage and maintain trust between users on the platform, you will need to confirm your identity with HypeBlu in order to be Verified. Depending on the category, you will be asked to choose one of the following three methods of verifying your identity:


Your account must represent or otherwise be associated with a prominently recognized individual or brand, in line with the notability criteria described below. In addition to confirming the identity of the controller of the account, HypeBlu will Verify the following types of accounts based on the criteria described. In all categories, HypeBlu may independently confirm qualifying affiliation through business partnerships or direct outreach. For each category we may request the following type of information to confirm notability:

Note: HypeBlu uses a mix of internal signals to evaluate the authenticity of a given account's followers and engagement. We also assess a range of signals from third-party public resources that have been submitted in support of applications (such as how recently they were updated) to evaluate the quality of those resources. We do this to confirm that you have not purchased followers.


Your account must be active with a record of adherence to the HypeBlu Terms of Service. This means:

*Note: We may make exceptions to the above requirements for accounts at high risk of impersonation or safety related concerns. We reserve the right to deny or revoke Verification to accounts that meet any of the above criteria through artificial or inauthentic activity.

Affiliation Verified

Affiliation badges indicates that an account is connected to a Brand/Government verified account on HypeBlu. The affiliation badge contains the profile photo of a Verified Organization and is applied to all the affiliates of that organization (all will need approval from our team)

For example, a company can affiliate their leadership, brands, support handles, employees or teams. A government can affiliate its precincts, officials, or their other entities. There is no limit to the number of affiliates an organization can have, or who they can affiliate (as long as they are related).

Legacy Verified

Legacy Verified Badges indicates that an account was verified using the old Verification Criteria when HypeBlu was just the FSS Blog Site. This badge is unobtainable.

Site Administrator/Moderator 

The Site Administrator and Site Moderator badges are only given to HypeBlu Administrators. A site member can obtain this badge when they become a HypeBlu Employee. This badge, as well as the HypeBlu Employee badge, are used to identify HypeBlu Employees.

If someone claims to be a HypeBlu moderator but don't possess the badge, they are impersonating a HypeBlu admin and should be reported. The "HypeBlu Employee" badge is also used to recognize HypeBlu Team Members.

Infrastructure Badge

The Infrastructure Badge is handed out to select HypeBlu Employees who work behind-the-scenes on our servers. 

If someone claims to be a Infrastructure Team Member but don't possess the badge or a HypeBlu Employee badge, they are impersonating a HypeBlu member and should be reported.

Banned Badge

This badge is assigned to an account that is due for termination within 24 to 48 hours for violating our Terms of Use

These accounts may also be marked with "Suspended". 

We used gamersheepboy as an example.

Suspended Badge

Loss of Verification Status

In accordance with the HypeBlu Terms of Service, HypeBlu may remove the Verified status of an account at any time without notice. 

Sometimes, changes made to an account by the owner may result in loss of Verified status. User-made changes include, but are not limited to: 

We may also remove verification badges from accounts that are found to be in severe or repeated violation of the HypeBlu ToS. Any violation of the HypeBlu Terms of Service or rules, manipulation of HypeBlu processes, or circumvention of enforcement actions may result in loss of the badge or in certain instances, suspension. This includes: 

Removal of the badge based on repeated violations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and is not automatic. 

HypeBlu reserves the right to assess the qualifications of any Verified account under the currently published version of the Verification Policy.

Note: We may suspend accounts that use imagery of, or similar to, the Verification badge in a manner that may mislead the public about the account’s Verification status.
