Get your business page verified on Facebook

You are here:
< Back

From Facebook’s support: “If your Page’s category is Local BusinessCompany or Organization, your Page may be eligible for a gray verification badge. If you’re an admin, your Page has a profile picture and cover photo and is eligible, you’ll see this option in your Page’s Settings.” To verify your Page, you can use your business’s publicly listed phone number or a business document (example: phone bill).

The steps to follow are:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page
  2. Click General
  3. Go to Page Visibility, then click Edit
  4. Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started
  5. Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country, and language
  6. Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code
  7. Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue
If you prefer to verify your Page with a business document (example: phone bill), follow the steps above and click Verify this Page with documents instead at the bottom left of the window that appears, then upload a picture of an official document showing your business’s name and address. We’ll only use this information to verify your Page.
After we receive your verification code or business document, we’ll review your info to confirm that it matches public records and send you a notification or email about your verification status within a few days. Keep in mind that you’re not required to verify your Page.
