If you see a friend or see other users on Xbox with a check mark, it looks like they are a verified user.
While it may look like they are verified, it actually is a work-around to make it seem that way.
There is no official Xbox verification but a clever trick can be done to make it seem as though an account has been verified.
How Do You Get Verified on Xbox?
Since there is no official verification, a simple workaround is used to make it have a check mark next to the name.
To do this, a PC is used, and a Profile Name is edited on the main Microsoft Account page.
Code is copied for an invisible empty character and check mark, to copy into the first and last name in the profile.
The code is not visible on a PC or smartphone but will be visible on the Xbox.
Once copied over, be sure to give 1-2 hours to update for other users to see the check mark.
