In an effort to tackle the industry-wide streaming fraud issue, we may ask you to verify your account by connecting your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to our platform.

This helps us to confirm it is a real artist trying to distribute, and not a bot or fraudster!

We won't be able to deliver your music to certain services until your account is verified.

How to connect your accounts

If you've been asked to verify your artist, you can connect your artist's social media accounts to us from the Artist Profile page.

You will need to fully connect any of the following accounts:



When your accounts are connected they will look like this:

This helps us confirm you are who you say you are, by proving you have access to the Artist's social media page.

What happens next?

Once your profiles are fully connected, you'll get some extra bonuses in the platform, including:

  • Richer insights

  • Access to Fan Builder advertising campaigns for FB and Insta.

  • Releases delivered to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok

Once we're satisfied that the profiles you've connected are real and match the name you're distributing under, we'll be able to deliver your music to our full network of streaming platforms.

You shouldn't be prompted to verify your account again for any future releases.

Why Social Media accounts?

This is our easiest way of verifying that a real artist is releasing music. There's no point in distributing tracks if you don't have an audience who are going to listen to it.

If an artist is trying to distribute without any fanbase at all, it's usually because they are controlling the streams themselves once the music goes live or are conducting fingerprinting scams through services like Content ID.

Why does this matter?

Streaming fraud takes money away from real artists. You can find out more about it in this article.
