How to verify your business on Meta

Before you begin

You can only start the verification process if your business portfolio is eligible for verification.
You must have full control of the business portfolio.
If you provide false or misleading information during the verification process, attempt to claim and verify a business you're not authorised to represent, or otherwise attempt to circumvent Meta's verification review system, Meta may prevent your business from being verified, remove your business's verified status or take additional action on the account.

Note: The Meta business account, sometimes called a Business Manager account, is being renamed to business portfolio. This change will appear gradually across Meta technologies.
