When you link your Threads and Mastodon profiles successfully, the link to your Threads profile on Mastodon will green verification checkmark and this verification sign will be visible to anyone who’s viewing your Mastodon profile. 

The process of verifying your Threads profile on Mastodon involves two crucial steps and we’ll explain them down below. The instructions that follow have been scripted for the Mastodon and Threads apps on your phone. This is because Threads isn’t currently available on the web or as a desktop app which prevents you from editing your Threads profile on a PC.
