Verifying a Facebook Business Page

Verifying a Facebook Business Page is a simple step a Page Owner can take to make sure their Page looks professional, shows up higher in search results, and help users find authentic and active accounts. To qualify for Page Verification, the Category must be “Local Business” or “Companies & Organizations” and have a Profile Picture and Cover Photo.

The easiest way to verify your Facebook Business Page is via phone number, but be sure you’re using the phone number that is associated with your Business.

Verified Pages will have a checkmark near the name like the one below:
