Verified by Padoq

Kate Santo Updated by Kate Santo

Much like official accounts on Twitter, padoqs can be verified in Padoq apps. From the user's point of view, this means they can easily identify padoqs that have been checked by someone at Padoq. This builds trust in the content. From the padoq creator's point of view, this means they can offer that stamp of trust to members and potential members.

Find out more about how padoqs are verified and what that looks like in the UI.

  • For a padoq to be verified, it needs to appear in Explore. This means that its visible property needs to be true

Verified by Padoq

Verified padoqs look like this in Explore and in the guest view -note the golden badge next to the padoq avatar:

In a padoq's details, there's a property called verified. If its value is true, the padoq is verified. If it's false, the padoq isn't verified.

When the padoq is verified, its logo (the round avatar) gets that little badge added to it.

Currently, only a Padoq admin can update the value of that property. This is done via the updatePadoq endpoint.
