X, formerly known as Twitter, has introduced a new feature for its Twitter Blue subscribers, allowing them to hide their verification badges from their profiles and posts.

The coveted blue checkmark on X was once a symbol of trust and credibility, but its value diminished when it became accessible to anyone with a Twitter Blue subscription. This led to incessant ridicule and a loss of the checkmark's prestige.

For Twitter Blue users who subscribed to enjoy benefits like increased post reach, extended character limits, and post-editing options, this was disappointing. However, there's good news now, as they can finally conceal the blue checkmark of shame.

On Tuesday morning, X made an update to its verification page, announcing the introduction of a new feature that enables users to hide their checkmarks. When activated, the blue checkmark will no longer be visible on their profiles and posts, offering a semblance of incognito mode for the subscription.

"As a subscriber, you now have the option to hide your checkmark on your account. This means the checkmark will no longer be displayed on your profile and posts. However, it may still appear in some areas, and certain features might reveal that you have an active subscription. While your checkmark is hidden, some features may also be limited. We are continually improving this feature to enhance your experience," reads the update.

To hide your X Blue badge, follow these simple steps:

1. Click on the profile icon at the top left of the screen.

2. Select "Settings and privacy" from the menu.

3. Under the "X Blue settings" section, click on "Profile Customization."

4. Check the box next to "Hide your blue checkmark" to activate the feature.

With just a few clicks, you can now avoid cyberbullying related to the blue checkmark, giving you more control over your online presence.

As X continues to evolve its features and cater to user preferences, Twitter Blue subscribers can look forward to a more personalized and secure experience on the platform. Hide your blue tick and enjoy the benefits of Twitter Blue with confidence and ease.
