How Do I Verify my Facebook Page?

IMPORTANT: Before you start, ensure you are next to your official business telephone ready to take a call.

  • Click Settings at the top of your Page
  • Select General on the left and then Page Verification

  • Enter your listed phone number for your business, your country and language
  • Click the Call Me Now button
  • Facebook will call you with an automated verification code
  • Listen carefully and enter the 4-digit verification code in the box you now see on Facebook

What's the difference between a Blue Tick and a Grey One?

Blue badge = Facebook confirms that this is the authentic Page or profile for this public figure, media company or brand.

Grey badge = Facebook confirms that this is an authentic Page for this business or organisation.
