Many people see verified Google+ accounts and wonder if their G+ account can also be verfied? If yes, then what is the process for getting the account verified?

The short answer is: it is not possible to get your name or email address verified on Google Plus.

Google+ has begun to verify names and emails of celebrities and public figures. This is done to keep identity theft at bay and also to give an certain identity to the person who deserves it.

Process for Getting Google+ Account Verified

Verification is a manual process and Google chooses people on its own. Therefore, there is no established process through which one can apply for consideration for account verification.

So, No Chance?

Well, if you have been added by a huge number of people in their Google+ circles, there are high chances that Google will approach you with the offer of verification. So, if you want to get your account verified –make sure that lots of people have you in their circles. There is no set number as how many people should add you in circles before you are considered to be a public figure.
