Elon Musk’s Company X Introduces Government-Approved ID Verification System to Combat Fake Accounts

X, the popular social media platform owned by tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, has recently introduced a government-approved ID-based authentication system in an effort to combat the rise of fake accounts. This new feature, exclusively available to premium customers, aims to uphold the platform’s credibility and ensure the authenticity of user profiles. X has joined forces with Israeli company Au10tix to implement this cutting-edge verification technology not only in the European Union and the UK but also in various countries worldwide.


In addition to tackling the issue of fraudulent or spam accounts, X has emphasized its commitment to protecting its users from potential dangers within the platform. By opting for this ID verification process, users will not only help safeguard the community but also gain access to exclusive future benefits offered by X. Upon completion of the verification, users will receive a pop-up message adorned with a distinctive blue check mark, indicating their verified status. It’s important to note that this feature is currently applicable only to personal accounts.


However, X has made it clear that business or company accounts will not be eligible for this authentication feature. While this initiative aims to uphold the platform’s integrity, it hasn’t come without its share of criticism. Many customers expressed their discontent with Elon Musk’s decision to rebrand Twitter with the letter ‘X,’ as they still associate the old blue bird logo with the platform. Some concerns were raised regarding the potential confusion between the ‘X’ icon and adult content due to its similarities with X-rated videos.

One social media user, Dr. Parikh Patel, humorously shared their experience of mistaking the ‘X’ app on their son’s phone for adult videos, only to discover it was the X social media platform. There have even been jests about potential legal action by adult entertainment websites if Twitter’s media player were to be named XVideos. Additionally, reports suggest that Twitter plans to transition from its current domain to X.COM, further hinting at a significant rebranding of the company as the ‘X Everything App.’

In the midst of these changes, tech observers speculate that X’s logo transformation aligns with the company’s strategic branding goals, embracing a broader scope beyond its initial identity as a social media platform. As X forges ahead, users can expect continued enhancements to their online experience.
