Verify your Facebook Business Manager Account

  • You don't need to submit documentation for business verification.

  • When you start the business verification process, fill out the form with your credit line information and submit it.

  • If you don't see that option, make sure that the Facebook Business Manager Account you're trying to verify is linked to a credit line that you own, not one that is shared with another business.

Verify your Facebook Business Manager Account

You won't be able to begin the verification process unless your business needs to be verified.

  1. In Meta Business Manager, go to the Security Center.

  2. Click Start verification.

  3. Enter your business details and click Next.

  4. Select the correct business from the list, or select None of these match if you don't see your business on the list.

  5. Confirm your business details.

  6. Choose to get a verification code on your business phone number via a text message or phone, or via email. The phone number option may not be available in all countries.

  7. If you don't get the verification code, you can request to receive another code.

  8. (Optional) If your domain is already verified, you can click Verify us... in step 5. If not, complete the domain verification process. Then return to the Security Center and click Continue. Learn when to use domain verification to verify your business.

  9. Enter your verification code (not applicable if you use domain verification).

  10. Click Submit.

The business information you provide during verification will be publicly visible if your Facebook Page has a large US following or runs ads about social issues, elections, or politics.

Next steps

If you receive confirmation that your business is verified, there’s nothing more you need to do.

  • You’ll receive a notification once the review is complete.

  • You can also check your status in Security Center.

Once business verification is complete, you can return to Security Center to edit your details at any time.

Any changes you make to your details in the Security Center will require you to complete the business verification process again.

If verification fails

The verification decision is entirely at the discretion of Meta. If your business does not get verified this is out of our control.

If Meta cannot verify your business, they may ask you to submit your ID for another attempt. If the initial verification fails, you might be required to upload additional documentation, such as a certificate of incorporation or a business license, to prove that your business is registered.

Providing false or misleading information, claiming a business you aren’t authorized to represent, or attempting to bypass our verification systems may result in Meta preventing or removing your business's verification status and taking further action on the account.
