What is a verified Page or profile?
Change platform:Computer Help
The verified badge appears next to a Facebook Page or profile. It means Facebook has confirmed that the Page or profile is the authentic presence of the public figure or global brand it represents. We don’t use the verified badge to endorse or recognize public figures or brands.
The verified badge is a tool to help people find public figures and brands' real Pages and profiles. If a Page or profile has the verified badge, we've confirmed that it represents who it says it does. If the badge isn't there, it may not be the real Page or profile. Posts, stories and other content from verified Pages and profiles aren’t verified by Facebook.
A verified Page or profile cannot transfer ownership or modify its purpose. Edits such as name, category and bio updates are reviewed before they're posted. Ownership transfers and significant changes may be grounds for badge removal.
