X is eliminating the feature that allows premium users to hide checkmarks.


Elon Musk’s social network X introduced a feature last year allowing paid subscribers to conceal their checkmarks from others. However, users are now receiving notifications stating that this feature will soon be discontinued.

As with many decisions made by X, there is no clear timeline for when the ability to hide checkmarks will be removed.

Last week, the company removed the section detailing how to utilize the hide checkmark feature from the X Premium support page before sending notifications to users. This feature was exclusively available to Premium and Premium+ subscribers.

“As a Premium or Premium+ subscriber, you can opt to hide your checkmark on your account. The checkmark will be concealed on your profile and posts. However, it may still be visible in some instances, and certain features could still indicate that you have an active subscription,” the description stated.

Earlier this month, the social network began granting blue checkmarks to influential users with over 2,500 “verified” followers. Additionally, it started offering Premium subscriptions to these users and Premium+ subscriptions to those with more than 5,000 verified followers.

Last year, Musk eliminated the traditional verification checkmark after introducing a subscription program for it. However, the company later reinstated the blue checkmark for select accounts. Essentially, the verification program is returning to its original purpose of verifying notable individuals.
