What does "Verified" mean next to some users' names?

Digital credentials have the greatest meaning when their source is known, trusted and verified. When you see the “Verified” icon on a Credly member’s badge or profile, it means that Credly has completed a verification process to indicate that the account belongs to the person or organization represented.

How can you become verified?

Credly Pro and Pro Premium Issuer member accounts are eligible to be verified as part of their Pro account status.  If you are a Pro member but you have not yet been verified, click the "Verification" page from your Account Settings. There is no additional fee to be verified.

If you are free member you, too, can have your account verified. You can either upgrade to a Pro account, or visit the "Upgrade" page and choose the Basic option to "get verified." There is a nominal annual fee to get and remain verified without a Pro account.

Verified members may embed the official Credly "Verified Issuer" seal on their web site or use it in their credit-related outreach or communications. Look for the "Verified Issuer" seal across the web to trust the authenticity of the source of issued credit.

(See the Credly Terms of Service for additional information about Verified status.)
