How To Verify Your Facebook Page

Want that pretty blue checkmark next to your Facebook Page to show it’s verified? It’s actually a very simple process to follow!

First off, there are a few reasons why it’s important to be verified. While the blue checkmark won’t make or break your business, there are a few reasons why it is important:

  1. It shows your business is legit

  2. It conveys a sense of trust in the mind of the consumer


So, in order to verify your Facebook Page, follow these simple steps:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page.

  2. From General, click Page Verification.

  3. Click Verify this Page.

  4. Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language.

  5. Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code.

  6. Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue.

If that doesn't work, you have the option to verify your page with documents. You can use a: 

  • Business utility or phone bill

  • Business license

  • Business tax file

  • Certificate of formation

  • Articles of incorporation

After following these steps, Facebook will review this information for accuracy. If done correctly, your page should be verified in a couple of days!

Good luck!
