For the uninitiated, Meta Verified is a subscription bundle for Instagram and Facebook account verification, which costs $14.99 USD/month (iOS/Android) or $11.99 USD/month on the web (Facebook only).

Initially available in Australia and New Zealand for people 18 years or older, the service is now launching in the United States as well.
