Here is a quick and easy way to verify your Business Page and get the coveted gray “check mark” by your business name on Facebook.
Note: If your Page represents a celebrity, public figure, sports team, media or entertainment, you may be eligible for a blue verification badge. To see if your Page is eligible, please see this process on Facebook for the blue checkmark.
If your Page’s category is Local Businesses or Companies & Organizations, 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’ publicly listed phone number or a business document (ex: phone bill). We’ll only use this information to verify your Page.
TO VERIFY YOUR PAGE:
- Click Settings at the top of your Page
- From General, click Page Verification
- Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started
- Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language
- Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code
- Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue
If all goes well, within a few minutes you will see the verification check mark on your page next to your business name.
If you prefer to verify your Page with a business document, 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’ name and address.
After Facebook receives your verification code or business document, they’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.
