Verify your podcast on Apple Podcasts with Verification Code

Previously, to transfer ownership of a podcast on Apple Podcasts, you would need to enter a six-digit authorization code in your RSS feed’s keywords or copyright fields.

Now, on Transistor, you can enter the authorization code in the new Verification Code field.

Apple Podcasts verification code field

You can enter your temporary verification code by going to the Settings menu and scrolling down to the Advanced Settings section.

The <podcast:txt> tag

Behind the scenes, this field uses a new Podcasting 2.0 namespace tag. Here's how it will look in your RSS feed:

<podcast:txt purpose="verify">05124</podcast:txt>

This text field will also be useful when claiming your podcast on other platforms.

You'll still be able to use email verification by temporarily displaying your email address in your RSS feed.
