Here’s the crux of the article in video form:

X (FKA Twitter) now allows users to hide their blue verification checkmark from their profile.

While users will get all the perks of Blue subscription, the verification checkmark won’t show up on their profile and posts. However, there might be some places where the verification checkmark might still show up.


Moreover, some features could reveal that you have an active subscription even when you hide your blue checkmark.

X’s blue verification checkmark is a coveted symbol of authenticity and credibility for public figures, brands, and notable personalities.

Having said that, there may be instances when you prefer to maintain a low profile or simply don’t want the verification badge displayed on your Twitter account.
