* Short Stories will never request payment for verification or reach out to ask you to confirm your verification.

Once we review your request, you'll receive a notification letting you know if your account has been verified or not. If your request is denied, you can submit a new request after 30 days.

Keep in mind that Short Stories can remove verified badges at any time, and may take away your badge or disable your account if you:

If your account doesn't have a verified badge, there are other ways to let people know you're authentic. For example, you can link to your website or social media accounts.
